SPIRIT of faith, come down,

By A Collection of Hymns

      1 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.

      2 No man 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!"

      3 O that the world 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 all mankind,
      And speak in every heart.

      4 Inspire the living faith,
      Which whosoe'er receives,
      The witness in himself he hath,
      And consciously believes;
      The faith that conquers all,
      And doth the mountain move,
      And saves whoe'er on Jesus call,
      And perfects them in love.
