1 There are wants my heart is telling
While the Spirit passes by,
And with hope my soul is swelling
While the Spirit passes by.
O what prospects now I see,
What a life my life must be,
If thy seal is placed on me,
While the Spirit passes by!

Refrain:
While the Spirit passes by,
While the Spirit passes by;
Let my heart be sealed for thee
While the Spirit passes by.

2 There are sins my lips confessing
While the Spirit passes by,
Treasures long my heart possessing,
While the Spirit passes by.
All the world’s delight and cheer,
All the things I held so dear,
Ah, how worthless they appear
While the Spirit passes by.

3 Here I stand, myself disdaining,
While the Spirit passes by;
Stand in faith, thy mercy claiming,
While the Spirit passes by;
Let thy power my soul refine,
Let thy grace my will incline,
Take my all and make it thine,
While the Spirit passes by.
