Lyrics

Are you filled with glory, brother?
Are you fully saved from sin?
Is the Holy Spirit burning in your soul?
Has the stream from Calv’ry’s mountain
Cleansed you perfectly within?
Has the Spirit in your heart the full control?

Refrain

Glory, glory be to Jesus,
Now the Comforter abides,
And the waves of peace and glory fill my soul.
I am sanctified and happy,
Walking by my Savior’s side,
While the streams of life from Heaven o’er me roll.

Is the Comforter abiding,
Keeping you by pow’r divine?
Free from evil, in the way of truth each day?
Is He dwelling in His temple?
Does His glory in you shine?
Bless the Lord! I know He’s come in me to stay.

Refrain

Are you free from strife and envy,
And from worldliness and pride,
Washed and whiter than the snow in Jesus blood?
If a single stain of crimson
Yet within you should abide—
Even one, your soul would banish from your God.

Refrain

Are you ready for the Bridegroom,
Robed in garments white and clean?
Is your lamp now filled with oil and burning bright?
Are you living close to Jesus?
Do you on His bosom lean,
Meek and lowly, pure and spotless in His sight?

Refrain
