Lyrics

My soul crieth out for the Spirit,
I’m hungering and thirsting to know
The fullness of blessing He giveth;
Now fill me while humbly I bow.

Refrain

Come in, come in! Blessèd Spirit,
Thy work of great blessing begin;
By faith I lay hold of Thy promise,
And claim complete victory o’er sin.

O Spirit of God and of Jesus,
Blest Trinity, come and possess
My body, my soul, and my spirit,
And fill me with Thy holiness.

Refrain

My body make meet for Thy temple,
My heart make Thou whiter than snow;
My spirit make loving and gentle,
Oh, fill me while humbly I bow.

Refrain

O ye that are thirsting for fullness,
Make room by forsaking all sin;
Surrender to Him your whole nature,
By faith let the Spirit come in.
