and in our hearts take up Thy rest;
come with Thy grace and heav’nly aid,
To fill the hearts which Thou hast made.
Thou heav’nly gift of God most high,
Thou Fount of life, and Fire of love,
and sweet anointing from above.
the sevenfold gifts of grace are thine;
true promise of the Father thou,
who dost the tongue with power endow.
and shed thy love in every heart;
thine own unfailing might supply
to strengthen our infirmity.
and thine abiding peace bestow;
if thou be our preventing Guide,
no evil can our steps betide.
