THE SPIRIT OF GOD DWELLETH IN YOU




Blest are the pure in heart,
For they shall see our God;
The secret of the Lord is theirs;
Their soul is Christ’s abode.


The Lord, Who left the heavens
Our life and peace to bring,
To dwell in lowliness with men
Their Pattern and their King.


Still to the lowly soul
He doth Himself impart;
And for His dwelling and His throne
Chooseth the pure in heart.


Lord, we Thy presence seek;
May ours this blessing be;
Give us a pure and lowly heart,
A temple meet for Thee.


---Alternative verses---


He to the lowly soul
will still himself impart
and for his dwelling and his throne
will choose the pure in heart.


He to the lowly soul
Doth still himself impart
And for his dwelling and his throne
Chooseth the pure in heart.


Lord, we Thy presence seek; 
May ours this blessing be; 
Oh, give the pure and lowly heart 
A temple meet for Thee.
