Verse 1: Our blest Redeemer, ere He breathed His tender last farewell, A Guide, a Comforter, bequeathed With us to dwell.
Verse 2: He came sweet influence to impart, a gracious, willing guest, When He can find one humble heart Wherein to rest.
Verse 3: And His that gentle voice we hear, soft as the breath of ev’n, That checks each fault, that calms each fear, And speaks of heav’n.
Verse 4: O God of purity and grace, our weakness, pitying, see; O make our hearts Thy dwellingplace, And worthier Thee.
