Lelia N. Morris

Ye are the temples, Jesus hath spoken,
Temples of God’s Holy Spirit divine;
Have ye received Him, bidden Him enter,
Make His abode in that poor heart of thine?


Have ye received, since ye believed,
The blessèd Holy Ghost?
He who was promised, gift of the Father,
Have ye received the Holy Ghost?

He who has pardoned surely will cleanse thee,
All of the dross of thy nature refine;
Cleansed from all sin, His Spirit will enter,
Fill you and thrill you with power divine.


Showers of mercy, fullness of blessing,
Ever the Spirit’s indwelling attend;
’Tis the enduement, power for service,
Fruits for your labor He surely will send.
