193. Eternal Spirit, God of Truth

1 Eternal Spirit, God of truth,
Our contrite hearts inspire;
Revive the flame of heavenly love,
And feed the pure desire.

2 ’Tis Thine to soothe the sorrowing mind,
With guilt and fear oppressed;
’Tis Thine to bid the dying live,
And give the weary rest.

3 Subdue the power of every sin,
Whate’er that sin may be,
That we, with humble, holy heart,
May worship only Thee.

4 Then, with our spirits witness bear
That we are sons of God,
Redeemed from sin, from death, and hell,
Through Christ’s atoning Blood.
