8s & 7s. 1 COME, thou all-inspiring Spirit, Into every longing heart! Bought for us by Jesu's merit, Now thy blissful self impart; Sign our uncontested pardon, Wash us in the atoning blood! Make our hearts a watered garden; Fill our spotless souls with God.
2 If thou gav'st the enlarged desire, Which for thee we ever feel, Now our panting souls inspire, Now our cancelled sin reveal; Claim us for thy habitation; Dwell within our hallowed breast; Seal us heirs of full salvation, Fitted for our heavenly rest.
3 Give us quietly to tarry, Till for all thy glory meet, Waiting, like attentive Mary, Happy at the Saviour's feet; Keep us from the world unspotted, From all earthly passions free, Wholly to thyself devoted, Fixed to live and die for thee.
4 Wrestling on in mighty prayer, Lord, we will not let thee go, Till thou all thy mind declare, All thy grace on us bestow; Peace, the seal of sin forgiven, Joy, and perfect love, impart, Present, everlasting heaven, All thou hast, and all thou art!
