COME, thou all-inspiring Spirit,

By A Collection of Hymns

      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!
