Lord Whose Love in Humble Service

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.


  1. Thank you so very much for the work you've done for entire website!

  2. My morning prayers are enriched by listening and learning the hymns before I pray my office. May the Lord bless you abundantly
