9655. Branch Of Jesse's Stem, Arise

1 Branch of Jesse’s stem, arise,
And in our nature grow;
Turn our earth to paradise,
By flourishing below:
Bless us with the spirit of grace
Immeasurably shed on Thee;
Pour on all the faithful race
The streaming Deity!

2 Let the Spirit of our Head
On all the members rest;
From Thyself to us proceed,
And dwell in every breast;
Teach to judge and act aright,
Inspire with wisdom from above,
Holy faith and heavenly might,
And reverential love.

3 Lord, of Thee we fain would learn
Thy heavenly Father’s will;
Give us quickness to discern,
And boldness to fulfill:
All His mind to us explain,
And His name on us impress,
Then our souls thro’ Thee attain
The spotless righteousness.
