In Thee, O Spi­rit, true and tender,
I find my life as God’s own child;
Within Thy light of glo­ri­ous splendor
I lose the earth-clouds drear and wild.

Within Thy love is safe abiding
From every thought that giveth fear;
Within Thy truth a perfect chiding,
Should I forget that Thou art near.

In Thee I have no pain or sorrow,
No anxious thought, no load of care.
Thou art the same today, tomorrow;
Thy love and truth are ev­ery­where.
