Lyrics

Spirit holy in me dwelling,
Ever work as Thou shalt choose;
All my ransomed powers and talents
For Thy purpose Thou shalt use.

Refrain

Spirit holy, Spirit holy,
All my being now possess;
Lead me, rule me, work within me,
Thru my life Thy will express.

Oh, how sweet is Thy abiding!
Oh, how tender is the love
Thou dost shed abroad within me
From the Father-heart above!

Refrain

Thou hast cleansed me for Thy temple,
Garnished with Thy graces rare;
All my soul Thou art enriching,
By Thy fullness dwelling there.

Refrain

In me now reveal Thy glory,
Let Thy might be ever shown;
Keep me from the world’s defilement,
Sacred for Thyself alone.
