Representative Text

1 Enter in, O Holy Spirit,
Take up thine abiding place;
Let me now through grace inherit,
All the riches of thy grace.

Blessed Spirit! Holy Spirit!
Come and claim thy right of way!
Blessed Spirit! Holy Spirit!
In my heart abide alway.

2 Take away all unbelieving,
From all sin and self set free;
Cleanse and purify thy temple,
Then O come and dwell in me. [Refrain]

3 May I be an emptied vessel,
Yet be full of love divine,
May my will and thoughts and actions
Be in sweet accord with thine. [Refrain]

4 I am waiting, all surrendered;
I am trusting in thy grace,
While I come with love and reverence,
Show me, Lord, thy smiling face. [Refrain]

5 Thou has promised grace and glory,
And, it is begun, I know,
For the spirit now bears witness
That the blood makes white as snow. [Refrain]
