THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT




Thrice-blessed Spirit!
Giver of salvation,
Purchased by Jesus
on the cross of shame;
Dwell in our hearts;
transform them with Thy beauty—
Fairest adorning
of our Saviour’s name.


Thy sevenfold grace
bestow upon us freely:
Love, deep and full,
to God and all mankind;
Joy in the Lord,
‘mid every earthly sorrow;
Peace, calm and sweet,
that guardeth heart and mind.


Make us long-suffering,
‘mid earth’s provocations;
Gentleness gives us,
when enduring wrong;
Goodness impart,
that we e’en foes may succour;
Faithfulness grant,
to change our toil to song.


Meekness bestow,
with humble self-abasement,
And self-control,
through Thy controlling might:
And as we list
to every call of duty,
May we do all
as in Thy searching sight.


Then with the gift
of holiness withing us;
We not less human,
but made more divine;
Our lives replete
with heaven’s supernal beauty,
Ever declare—
That beauty, Lord, is Thine.
