Blessèd Spirit, for the asking,
Thou didst come into my heart;
Oh, I ever would adore Thee,
Never, never from Thee part;
Blessèd Spirit, how I love Thee!
Dwell Thou ever in my heart.
Oh, this well of living water,
Springing up within my soul!
Life eternal to me giving,
Praise the Lord, I now am whole.
Thou dost tell me, blessèd Spirit,
That my soul is born of God;
Thou dost witness to the cleansing
Wrought within by Jesus’ blood;
I am happy, ever happy,
Since my heart is Thine abode.
Oh, this wondrous, blest anointing
Which within me doth abide,
Witnessing to Jesus’ merit—
In Thy guidance I confide;
Thou wilt lead me, Thou wilt bring me,
Bring me to my Savior’s side.
Now I taste of Heaven’s sweetness,
For my Savior in me lives;
Oh, the richness and completeness
Of this rest the Spirit gives!
Ever lead me, heav’nward lead me,
Conquering power unto me give.
