The Book of Praise.
Gracious Spirit, dwell with me ; I myself would gracious be, And with words that help and heal Would Thy life in mine reveal, And with actions bold and meek Would for Christ my Saviour speak.
Truthful Spirit, dwell with me ; I myself would truthful be, And with wisdom kind and clear Let Thy life in mine appear, And with actions brotherly Speak my Lord's sincerity.
Tender Spirit, dwell with me ; I myself would tender be, Shut my heart up like a flower At temptation's darksome hour, Open it when shines the sun, And His love by fragrance own.
Silent Spirit, dwell with me ; -
I myself would quiet be,
Quiet as the growing blade
Which through earth its way has made,
Silently, like morning light,
Putting mists and chills to flight.
Mighty Spirit, dwell with me ; I myself would mighty be, Mighty so as to prevail Where unaided man must fail, Ever by a mighty hope Pressing on and bearing up.
