730. Spirit Holy

1 Spirit holy in me dwelling,
Ever work as Thou shalt choose;
All my ransomed pow’rs and talents
For Thy purpose Thou shalt use.

Refrain:
Spirit holy, Spirit holy,
All my being now possess;
Lead me, rule me, work within me,
Through my life Thy will express.

2 Oh, how sweet is Thy abiding!
Oh, how tender is the love
Thou dost shed abroad within me
From the Father-heart above! [Refrain]

3 Thou hast cleansed me for Thy temple,
Garnished with Thy graces rare;
All my soul Thou art enriching
By Thy fullness dwelling there. [Refrain]

4 In me now reveal Thy glory,
Let Thy might be ever shown;
Keep me from the world’s defilement,
Sacred for Thyself alone. [Refrain]
