1 What is our calling's glorious hope,
But inward holiness?
For this to Jesus I look up;
I calmly wait for this.
2 I wait till he shall touch me clean--
Shall life and power impart;
Give me the faith that casts out sin
And purifies the heart.
3 This is the dear redeeming grace,
For every sinner free;
Surely it shall on me take place,
The chief of sinners--me.
4 From all iniquity, from all,
He shall my soul redeem;
In Jesus I believe, and shall
Believe myself to him.
5 When Jesus makes my heart his home,
My sin shall all depart;
And, lo! he saith, I quickly come,
To fill and rule thy heart.
6 Be it according to thy word;
Redeem me from all sin;
My heart would now receive thee, Lord;
Come in, my Lord, come in!
