1 Eternal Spirit, power 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, in singleness of heart,
May worship only thee.
4 Then with our spirits witness bear
That we are sons of God,
Redeemed from sin, and death, and hell,
Through Christ's atoning blood.
5 God, through himself, we then shall know,
If thou within us shine;
And sound, with all thy saints below,
The depths of love divine.
