4 Can this be He, once wont to stray, And washed us in His precious blood;
A Pilgrim on the world's highway, 'Tis He that makes us priests and kings,
Oppressed by power, and mocked by pride, And brings us rebels near to God.

I must not taste His love!

And hang upon Thy breast
Without a gracious smile from Thee,

Mark i. 10.
With all Thy quickening powers;
Kindle a flame of sacred love
In these cold hearts of ours. 3 Like mighty, rushing wind Upon the waves beneath,
2 Look how we grovel here below, Move with one impulse every mind;
Fond of these trifling toys;
Our souls can neither fly nor go
To reach eternal joys.
3 In vain we tune our formal songs,
In vain we strive to rise ;
And our devotion dies.
4 Dear Lord, and shall we ever live
At this poor dying rate?
Our love so faint, so cold to Thee,
And Thine to us so great ? 6 Spirit of truth, be Thou In life and death our Guide.
5 Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove, O Spirit of adoption, now
With all Thy quickening powers; May we be sanctified.
Come, shed abroad a Saviour's love,
And that shall kindle ours.
He shall teach you all things.

And break the chains of reigning sin; 4 Come, Holy Spirit, from above,
Do our imperious lusts subdue,
And form our wretched hearts anew. With Thy celestial fire; Come, and with flames of zeal and love

Thy cheering words awake our joys;
Thy words allay the stormy wind,
And calm the surges of the mind.

Each rising fear control, Unlock the truth, Thyself the key,
And with a warm, enlivening ray Unseal the sacred book.

To raise us when we fall; On our disordered spirits move,
To calm the doubting, troubled breast, And let there now be light.
