Spirit of Faith, Come Down

By Charles Wesley

      Spirit of faith, come down,
      reveal the things of God,
      and make to us the Godhead known,
      and witness with the blood.
      'Tis thine the blood to apply
      and give us eyes to see,
      who did for every sinner die
      hath surely died for me.

      No one can truly say
      that Jesus is the Lord,
      unless thou take the veil away
      and breathe the living Word.
      Then, only then, we feel
      our interest in his blood,
      and cry with joy unspeakable,
      "Thou art my Lord, my God!"

      O that the word might know
      the all atoning Lamb!
      Spirit of faith, descend and show
      the virtue of his name;
      the grace which all may find,
      the saving power, impart,
      and testify to humankind,
      and speak in every heart.

      Inspire the living faith
      (which whosoe'er receive,
      the witness in themselves they have
      and consciously believe),
      the faith that conquers all,
      and doth the mountain move,
      and saves whoe'er on Jesus call,
      and perfects them in love.
