1 Spirit of God, who dwells within my heart,
Wean it from sin, through all its pulses move.
Stoop to my weakness, mighty as you are,
And make me love you 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 Did you not bid us love you, God and King,
Love you with all our heart and strength and mind?
I see the cross– there teach my heart to cling.
Oh, let me seek you, and oh, let me find!

4 Teach me to feel that you are always nigh;
Teach me the struggles of the soul to bear,
To check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh;
Teach me the patience of unceasing prayer.

5 Teach me to love you as your angels love,
One holy passion filling all my frame:
The fullness of the heav'n-descended Dove;
My heart an altar, and your love the flame.


1 Mora en mi alma, Santo Espíritu;
del mundo aleja mi ambición banal;
con tu poder mi vida inspira tú,
y haz que te ame cual te debo amar.

2 No pido sueños, celestial visión,
ni roto el velo del misterio ver;
ni querubines, ni eternal mansión:
solo que alumbres, oh Señor, mi ser.

3 Mi afán amarte es, mi Rey, mi Dios,
mi mente, alma y corazón te di;
haz que camine de tu cruz en pos:
quiero seguirte y elevarme a ti.

4 Haz que te sienta cuando cerca estás,
que por ti luche con resolución;
que no vacile, ni que dude más;
confiando siempre solo en tu amor.

5 Cual los querubes yo te quiero amar;
que se consuma de pasión mi ser;
pues en mi pecho se alzará un altar
donde arda el fuego de tu gran poder.
