1 O Holy Father, gracious Lord!
Grant me thy heav'nly grace divine;
Convey thy spirit with the word,
And seal thy blessings ever mind.

2 Thy Spirit's gifts on me bestow'd,
With all thy promises appli'd,
Unites my soul to thee my God,
And makes me truly sanctifi'd.

3 To live and dwell where thou dost reign,
And see thee fully as thou art.
That will for ever be in vain,
Without a pure and holy heart.

4 To crucify my base desires
With ev'ry lust and ev'ry vice.
Such as true holiness requires,
Would place my soul in paradise.

5 As I am made thee truths to see,
And know them as they truly are,
True holiness my aim shall be;
My constant study, search and care.
