Indwelling Spirit

Indwelling Spirit! Prized art Thou
If losing Christ be gain;
And having Thee within us now
Forever to remain.

The ceaseless flow of godly love,
The joy of God and Son:
This is Thy life, O Holy Dove,
The Third of Three-in-One.

Thou art the pulse of love between
The Saviour and and His Sire;
Thou art an ever-flowing stream
Of infinite desire.

Thou art the thoughts of God Himself
When He Himself admires;
Thou art the gaze of God on God
With zeal that never tires.

Indwelling Spirit! Blessed are we
To host such heav’nly lays;
No Jewish Temple had such heights:
Where God loves God in praise.

Indwelling Spirit! Bear with us,
For hearts with coldness shod;
Enflame our hearts with Thine own self:
The love of God for God.
