IMPLORING THE RETURN OF GOD THE SPIRIT




For ever shall my fainting soul,
O God, thy just displeasure mourn;
Thy grieved Spirit, long withdrawn,
Will he no more to me return?


Once I enjoyed, O happy time!
The heart-felt visits of his grace;
Nor can a thousand varying scenes
The sweet remembrance quite efface!


Beneath his warming, quickening beams
This icy rock dissolved awayŚ
New life diffused through all my powers,
And darkness yielded to the day.


When justice waved his dreadful sword;
And guilt and fear my soul opprest,
He sprinkled o'er a Saviour's blood,
And whispered pardon to my breast.


Cheered with these dawning rays of hope,
He winged me to the throne of grace,
With tears, and groans, and wrestling prayers
To seek my heavenly Father's face.


Important Guest! thrice happy soul,
While honoured with his blest abode;
But, ah! my sins, accursed things,
Ye grieved, ye chased away my God.


Great source of light and peace, return,
Nor let me mourn and sigh in vain;
Come, repossess this longing heart
With all the graces of thy train.


This temple, hallowed by thine hand,
Once more be with thy presence blest;
Here be thy grace anew displayed,
And this thy everlasting rest.
