1 How blest are the hours that Jesus bestows,
When wonders of grace to the spirit He shows!
His Word lights the way to the heavenly goal,
His Spirit is near us,
His Spirit is near us,
To rouse us, and teach us, and comfort our soul!

2 Lord Jesus, our Saviour, Thy Spirit us give
To quicken, and strengthen, and cause us to live;
Grant faith and give love, and in mercy bestow
Whatever is needed,
Whatever is needed,
To exercise faith in our hearts here below.

3 Our hearts are so cold, yea, as hard as a stone;
Such are they by nature, and Thou art alone,
On earth and in heaven, the Saviour who can,
A new heart creating,
A new heart creating,
A new heart creating, make each a new man.

4 From sorrows of earth wilt Thou now turn our mind,
For days that are coming, oh, help us to find
Our joy and our comfort in what Thou hast wrought;
For we are Thy people,
For we are Thy people,
With death, wounds, and anguish so preciously bought.

5 Lord, therefore, remember in mercy and love
Thy people, and grant us Thy help from above;
Thy law cause to wake us, Thy grace give us cheer,
And lead us Thy Spirit,
And lead us Thy Spirit,
So that we may know that Thy presence is near.

Amen.
