|Show us mercy's perfect deed.|
Lord Whose Love in Humble Service was written by Albert Bayly in 1961 in response to a call by the Hymn Society of America's call for new hymns on social welfare. It is set to the traditional Dutch melody: In Babilone (Video #1), first published in Old and New Dutch Peasant Songs and County Dances; Amsterdam, circa 1710. Another tune often used is Beach Spring (Video #2). In the Liturgy of the Hours, Lord Whose in Humble Service is used during Ordinary Time for Morning Prayer.
