177 (C.M.) Harriet Auber

Our blest Redeemer, ere He breathed

His tender, last farewell,

A Guide, a Comforter, bequeathed

With us on earth to dwell.

He came in tongues of living flame

To teach, convince, subdue;

All pow'rful as the wind He came,

He came as viewless too.

He came sweet influence to impart,

A gracious, willing guest,

While He can find one humble heart

One heart wherein to rest.

And ev'ry virtue we possess,

And ev'ry vict'ry won,

And ev'ry thought of holiness,

Are His, and His alone.

Spirit of purity and grace,

Our weakness pitying see:

Oh, make our hearts Thy dwelling-place!

Oh, make them more like Thee!
