Representative Text

1 At the cross, where Jesus died,
Flows salvation’s mighty tide;
Holy Spirit, come to me,
Meet my soul at Calvary.

Cleanse me now, cleanse me now,
Make me pure within;
May my Savior’s blood applied,
Cleanse me from all sin.

2 Let me Thy sweet influence feel,
Riches of Thy grace reveal,
In my heart bid tumult cease,
Gently breathe Thy perfect peace. [Refrain]

3 Lead me by Thine inward voice,
Be Thy holy will my choice;
Ever may the fire divine
Dross consume and gold refine. [Refrain]

4 Tell me more of Jesus’ blood,
Sink my soul beneath the flood;
Holy Spirit, hear my pray’r
Now Thy testimony bear. [Refrain]
