Spirit holy in me dwelling,
Ever work as Thou shalt choose;
All my ransomed pow’rs and talents
For Thy purpose Thou shalt use.
Spirit holy, Spirit holy,
All my being now possess;
Lead me, rule me, work within me,
Through my life Thy will express.
- Oh, how sweet is Thy abiding!
Oh, how tender is the love
Thou dost shed abroad within me
From the Father-heart above!
- Thou hast cleansed me for Thy temple,
Garnished with Thy graces rare;
All my soul Thou art enriching
By Thy fullness dwelling there.
- In me now reveal Thy glory,
Let Thy might be ever shown;
Keep me from the world’s defilement,
Sacred for Thyself alone.
