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.


I ask no dream,
no prophet ecstasies,
No sudden rending
of the veil of clay,
No angel visitant,
no opening skies;
But take the dimness
of my soul away.


Hast Thou not bid me 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
heaven-descending Dove,
My heart an altar,
and Thy love the flame.
