It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,
2 It makes the wounded spirit whole,
3 By Him my prayers acceptance gain,
And I am own'd a child.
4 Weak is the effort of my heart,
5 Till then I would Thy love proclaim,
ESUS! the very thought of Thee
2 Nor voice can sing, nor heart can frame, Nor can the memory find
A sweeter sound than Thy blest name,
3 O Hope of ev'ry contrite heart,
To those who fall, how kind Thou art,
4 And those who find Thee, find a bliss
5 Jesus, our only joy be Thou!
JESUS! King most wonderful,
Thou Sweetness most ineffable,
2 When once Thou visitest the heart,
3 O Jesus, Light of all below!
4 May ev'ry heart confess Thy name,
And, seeking Thee, itself inflame
5 Thee may our tongues forever bless;

LOVE divine, how sweet thou art!
I long, and thirst, and faint to prove
2 Stronger His love than death or hell;
3 Oh, that I could forever sit,
4 Oh, that I could, with favor'd John,
The dear Redeemer's breast!
HIS EFFUSION AND MISSION.
ET songs of praises fill the sky!
2 The Spirit, by His heavenly breath,
He quickens sinners from the death
3 The things of Christ the Spirit takes,
4 Come, Holy Spirit, from above,
Come, and, with flames of zeal and love
ETERNAL Spirit! we confess
And sing the wonders of Thy grace:
2 Enlighten'd by Thy heavenly ray,
3 Thy glorious power works within, And breaks the chains of reigning sin, Doth our imperious lusts subdue,
And forms our wretched hearts anew. 4 The troubled conscience knows Thy voice, Thy cheering words awake our joys; Thy words allay the stormy wind, And calm the surges of the mind.
YOME, gracious Spirit, heavenly Dove,
Be Thou our guardian, Thou our guide; O'er ev'ry thought and step preside. 2 Conduct us safe, conduct us far From ev'ry sin and hurtful snare: Lead to Thy word, that rules must give, And teach us lessons how to live.
3 The light of truth to us display, That we may know and love Thy way; Plant holy fear in ev'ry heart,
That we from Thee may ne'er depart.
4 Lead us to righteousness, the road
YOME, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove,
Kindle a flame of sacred love
