1. In humility, our Savior,
Grant thy Spirit here, we pray,
As we bless the bread and water
In thy name this holy day.
Let me not forget, O Savior,
Thou didst bleed and die for me
When thy heart was stilled and broken
On the cross at Calvary.

2. Fill our hearts with sweet forgiving;
Teach us tolerance and love.
Let our prayers find access to thee
In thy holy courts above.
Then, when we have proven worthy
Of thy sacrifice divine,
Lord, let us regain thy presence;
Let thy glory round us shine.

Mabel Jones Gabbott (October 23, 1910 – February 13, 2004) was an American Latter-day Saint hymnwriter, and the author of the words to “Lord, Accept into Thy Kingdom,” “In Humility Our Saviour” and “We Have Partaken of Thy Love,” all now part of the 1985 LDS English hymnbook.

Gabbott also wrote many hymns published by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) in its Primary Children’s Songbook. These include “Did Jesus Really Live Again”, “Samuel Tells of the Baby Jesus”, and “He Sent His Son”. She has also written several works of poetry.

Gabbott was born in Malad, Idaho. She served as a Mormon missionary in the Northwestern States Mission (primarily Washington and Oregon) where she met her husband Don Gabbott. Both he and her mission presidentPreston Nibley, encouraged her to begin writing.

Gabbott worked as a secretary to LeGrand Richards after her return from her mission in 1938. She later worked for The Children’s Friend and The Improvement Era. She was on the General Church Music Committee from 1973 to 1975.
