2 Author of our new creation!
Bid us all thine influence prove;
Prayer for spiritual Enjoyment.
1 COME, Holy Spirit! calm my mind,
2 Hast thou imparted to my soul
207. The sight of God and Christ in Heaven. 1 DESCEND from heaven, immortal Dove! Stoop down, and take us on thy wings, And mount, and bear us far above The reach of these inferior things;2 Beyond-beyond this lower sky, Up where eternal ages roll, Where solid pleasures never die, And fruits immortal feast the soul.
3 Oh! for a sight, a blissful sight Of our almighty Father's throne! "e sits the Saviour, crowned with light, hed in a body like our own.
4 Adoring saints around him stand,
And thrones and powers before him fall; The God shines gracious through the man, And sheds sweet glories on them all. 5 Oh! what amazing joys they feel, While to their golden harps they sing, And sit on every heavenly hill,
And spread the triumph of their King!
208. Prayer for Light and Sanctification.
1 HOLY GHOST! with light divine,
2 Holy Ghost! with power divine,
Heal my wounded, bleeding heart. 4 Holy Spirit! all-divine,
Dwell within this heart of mine;
Various Influences desired.
1 ETERNAL Spirit!-God of truth! Our contrite hearts inspire;
Kindle a flame of heavenly love,
And feed the pure desire.
2 'T' is thine to soothe the sorr'wing mind,
And give the weary rest.
3 Subdue the power of every sin,
That we, in singleness of heart,
4 Then with our spirits witness bear,
Redeemed from sin, and death, and hell,
Prayer for the Spirit.
1 BLEST Comforter divine!
Let rays of heavenly love
Amid our gloom and darkness shine,
2 Draw, with thy still small voice, 1
3 By thine inspiring breath,
Make every cloud of care,
4 Oh! fill thou every heart
Prayer for Light and Guidance. 1 COME, gracious Spirit, heavenly Dove! With light and comfort from above; Be thou our guardian, thou our guide; O'er every thought and step preside. 2 To us the light of truth display,
And make us know and choose thy way;
That we from God may ne'er depart.
3 Lead us to holiness-the road
That we must take to dwell with God:
4 Lead us to God, our final rest,
The Sealing of the Spirit.
1 WHY should the children of a king
2 Dost thou not dwell in all the saints,
When wilt thou banish my complaints,
3 Assure my conscience of her part
And bear thy witness with my heart,
4 Thou art the earnest of his love,
213. Prayer against grieving the Spirit.
Nor take thine everlasting flight.
2 Though I have most unfaithful been
Of all who e'er thy grace received;
3 Yet, Oh! the chief of sinners spare,
1 SURE, the blest Comforter is nigh;
Else would my hope for ever die,
That animates these strong desires?
That brings this dawn of sacred peace? 4 Let thy good Spirit in my heart
For ever dwell, O God of love!
215. The Necessity of renewing Grace.
The heart, unchanged, can never rise
2 Can aught, beneath a power divine,
3 'Tis thine, the passions to recall,
4 To chase the shades of death away,
A beam of heaven-a vital ray,
5 Oh! change these wretched hearts of ours, And give them life divine;
Then shall our passions and our powers,
The Spirit desired.
1 GREAT Father of each perfect gift!
Behold thy servants wait;
