SPIRIT OF GOD, DESCEND UPON MY HEART


Spirit of God, descend upon my heart:

Wean it from earth, through all its pulses move,

Stoop to my weakness, mighty as Thou art,

And make me love Thee as I ought to love.


Hast Thou not bid us love Thee, God and King?

All, all Thine own - soul, heart and strength and mind.

I see Thy cross - there teach my heart to cling;

O let me seek Thee, and O let me find.


Teach me to feel that Thou art always nigh;

Teach me the struggles of the soul to bear -

To check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh;

Teach me the patience of unanswered prayer.


Teach me to love Thee as Thine angels love,

One holy passion filling all my frame:

The baptism of the heav’n descended Dove -

My heart an altar and Thy love the flame.
