Lyrics

The living principle of grace,
The faith producing holiness,
Now in our hearts doth dwell;
And still it shall in us abide,
’Till saved, and wholly sanctified,
We all Thy fullness feel.

Jesus, we steadfastly believe,
The grace Thou dost this moment give,
Thou wilt the next bestow;
Wilt keep us every moment here,
And show Thyself the Finisher,
And never let us go.
