333. Gracious Spirit, Dove Divine

1 Gracious Spirit, Dove divine,
let thy light within me shine;
all my guilty fears remove,
fill me full of heav'n and love.

2 Speak thy pard'ning grace to me,
set the burdened sinner free;
lead me to the Lamb of God,
wash me in his precious blood.

3 Life and peace to me impart;
seal salvation on my heart;
breathe thyself into my breast,
earnest of immortal rest.

4 Let me never from thee stray,
keep me in the narrow way,
fill my soul with joy divine,
keep me, Lord, forever thine.
