‘if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live’ Romans 8:13

Holy Spirit, gift divine,
precious treasure, you are mine:
mine to teach me by your Word, –
let your guiding voice be heard.

Holy Spirit, guest divine,
I would ever have you mine;
take the rubbish from my life,
sweep out idols, sin and strife.

Holy Spirit, furnish well,
holy home in which to dwell:
make my life to please you more,
on my heart engrave your law.

Oh, revealer of man’s sin,
recreating work begin;
bring to life that we may view
many now indwelt by you.

Tune: 77 77 eg Vienna by J H Knecht, or Aletta by W B Bradbury
