If you think you are the greatest, it’s a sure sign that you are not!

The section starts at about 6:2 and ends at about 6:31

46 Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest. 47 And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him, 48 And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.(KJV)

Hymn: TLH 318:
Before Thee, God, Who Knowest All


— Organ Audio

1. Before Thee, God, who knowest all, 
With grief and shame I prostrate fall. 
I see my sins against Thee, Lord, 
The sins of thought, of deed, and word. 
They press me sore; I cry to Thee: 
O God, be merciful to me! 

2. O Lord, my God, to Thee I pray: 
Oh, cast me not in wrath away! 
Let Thy good Spirit ne’er depart, 
But let Him draw to Thee my heart 
That truly penitent I be: 
O God, be merciful to me! 

3. O Jesus, let Thy precious blood 
Be to my soul a cleansing flood. 
Turn not, O Lord, Thy guest away, 
But grant that justified I may 
Go to my house at peace with Thee: 
O God, be merciful to me!
