The noble centurion

The wise Roman centurion

humbly acknowledged Thy glory

and pronounced himself unworthy

The praiseworthy man gained Thy praise

but the Gospel did not tell of

if Thou didst come under his roof

We neither wise nor praiseworthy

in our worship, oft less reverent

his words we speak, oft less earnest

But Thou, o Lord, in Thy mercy

More than praise Thou hast granted us:

Thou didst enter under our roof
