1 Eternal Spirit, God of truth,
our contrite hearts inspire;
Kindle a flame of heavenly love
and feed the pure desire.
2 'Tis Thine to soothe the sorrowing mind
with guilt and fear oppressed;
'Tis Thine to bid the dying live
and give the weary rest.
3 Subdue the power of every sin
Whate'er that sin may be,
that we in singleness of heart
may worship God alone.
4 Then with our spirits witness bear,
That we are sons of God,
Redeemed from sin and death and hell
Through Christ's atoning blood.
