The Counsellor

Christ promised me his Counsellor,
Spirit of truth and life,
his people’s blessed Comforter,
Spirit of truth and life.
Reveal to us your love, Lord,
tender and warm embrace,
immeasurable love, Lord,
merciful, sovereign grace.

Make known the glory of my Lord,
Spirit of truth and life,
my heart enlighten in Christ’s Word,
Spirit of truth and life.

O, through the Spirit give me power,
(Spirit of truth and life),
and strength and comfort hour by hour,
Spirit of truth and life.

O Saviour, Christ, reside with me,
cleanse and remove my sin;
rich fellowship grant constantly,
Spirit of Christ within.

Come, fill me with your fullness, Lord,
Spirit of truth and life,
Christ’s power and hope and love outpoured,
Spirit of truth and life.

And help me be what Christ desires,
Spirit of truth and life;
what you create, my Lord admires,
Spirit of truth and life.
Enjoy your blood-bought bride, Lord,
purchased for your delight;
what pleasures at your side, Lord, –
riches of love and light.
Tune: Quiet Rest by C B McAfee (634 Grace)
