Hymn/Song Information

GRIEVE NOT THE SPIRIT




My faith is weak, my foes are strong,
My wandering heart with anguish pained;
Celestial Dove, where art thou fled,
Since I thine influence restrained!
Oh come again and ease my heart,
There dwell, and never thence depart.


Teach me thy sovereign will to know,
From paths of folly to return;
Oh let me never grieve thee more,
Nor ever hence thine absence mourn
Come then, celestial Dove, impart
Thy sacred peace to soothe my heart.


Vouchsafe in answer to my prayer,
To form my inward powers anew;
Confirm my faith, my fears dispel,
And guide me all my journey through:
Come then, celestial Spirit, come,
And lead a lonely pilgrim home.
