PRAYER FOR THE WITNESS OF THE SPIRIT




Why should the children of a king
Go mourning all their days?
Great Comforter, descend and bring
Some tokens of thy grace.


Dost thou not dwell in all the saints,
And seal the heirs of heaven?
When wilt thou banish my complaints,
And show my sins forgiven?


Assure my conscience of her part
In the Redeemer's blood;
And bear thy witness with my heart,
That I am born of God.


Thou are the earnest of his love,
The pledge of joys to come;
And thy soft wings, celestial Dove,
Will safe convey me home.

Why should the children of a king
Go mourning all their days?
Great Comforter, descend and bring
Thy light, and joy, and grace.


Why should the children of a king
Go mourning all their days?
Great Comforter, descend and bring
The tokens of thy grace.


Dost thou not dwell in all thy saints,
And seal the heirs of heaven?
When wilt thou banish my complaints,
And show my sins forgiven?


Assure each conscience of her part
In the Redeemer's blood;
And bear thy witness with each heart,
That we are born of God.


Thou are the earnest of his love,
The pledge of joys to come;
Thy grace will all our sins remove,
Thy power convey us home.


Thou are the earnest of his love,
The pledge of joys to come;
May thy blest wings, celestial Dove,
Safely convey me home!
