Representative Text

1 Dwell within me, Holy Spirit,
Keep me in thy blessed peace;
let the new-born hope and courage,
From all sorrow bring release.

Dwell within me, Holy Spirit,
Let thy light upon me shine;
Draw me nearer, daily nearer,
Lift me up to light divine.

2 Dwell within me, Holy Spirit,
As on thy dear name I call;
Fill my heart with pure endeavor,
Making thee my all in all. [Refrain]

3 Dwell within me, Holy Spirit,
Till I see, thro’ faith’s clear eyes,
My Redeemer, Christ my Savior,
In the light of Paradise. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
