Excellence of Christain unanimity and Love.
I Spirit of peace, celestial Dove,
How excellent thy praise !
No richer gift than Christian love
Thy gracious power displays.
2 Sweet as the dew on herb and flower,
That silently distills,
At evening's soft and balmy hour,
On Zion's fruitful hills,—
3 So, with mild influence from above,
Shall promis'd grace descend,
Till universal peace and love
O'er all the earth extend.
Spirit of the Psalms.
253 " Thy will be done." C. M.
I Jesus, the life, the truth, the way,
In whom I now believe,
As taught by thee, in faith I pray,
Expecting to receive.
2 Thy will by me on earth be done,
As by the powers above,
Who always see thee on thy throne,
And glory in thy love.
3 I ask in confidence the grace,
That I may do thy will,
As angels who behold thy face,
And all thy words fulfil.
4 Surely I shall, the sinner I.
Shall serve thee without fear,
If thou my nature sanctify
In answer to my prayer.
254 A holy heart the Saviour s home. C. M.
I What is our calling's glorious hope
But inward holiness !
For this to Jesus I look up,
I calmly wait for this.
2 I wait, till he shall touch me clean,
Shall life and power impart,
Give me the faith that casts out sin,
And purifies the heart.
3 This is the dear redeeming grace,
For every sinner free ;
Surely it shall on me take place,
The chief .of sinners, me.
4 From all iniquity, from all,
He shall my soul redeem !
In Jesus I believe, and shall
Believe myself to him.
5 When Jesus makes my heart his home,
My sin shall all depart;
And, lo he saith : " I quickly come,
To fill and rule thy heart! "
