266 Spirit of God


# 266 Spirit of God
1. Spirit of God! descend upon my heart; Wean it from earth; through all its pulses move; Stoop to my weakness, mighty as Thou art, And make me love Thee as I ought to love.
2. I ask no dream, no prophet ecstasies No sudden rending of the veil of clay; No angel visitant, no op’ning skies; But take the dimness of my soul away.
3. Hast Thou not bid us love Thee, God and King? All, all Thine own, soul, heart, and strength, and mind I see Thy cross, there teach my heart to cling: O let me seek Thee, and O let me find
4. Teach me to feel that Thou art always nigh; Teach me the struggles of the soul to bear; To check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh; Teach me the patience of unanswered prayer.
5. Teach me to love Thee as Thine angels love One holy passion filling all my frame; The baptism of the heav’n-descended dove, My heart an altar, and Thy love the flame.
