Spirit of God, descend upon my heart
Spirit of God, descend upon my heart;
wean it from earth; through all its pulsing move;
stoop to my weakness, mighty as you are,
and make me love you as I ought to love.
2. Have you not called my heart to love you, Lord?
All, all your own-heart, soul, and strength and mind:
I see the cross; there you shall be adored;
O let me come for mercy, seek, and find!
3. Teach me to feel that you are always near;
teach me the struggles of the soul to bear,
to check the rising doubt, the rebel fear;
teach me the patience of unanswered prayer.
4. Teach me to love you as your angels love,
one holy fire for your unrivalled name-
the baptism of the heaven-descended dove,
my heart an altar, and your love the flame.
