++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Lord, Thou knowest all my heart,–

How longingly it pants for Thee.

Holy Father, now impart

Thy Spirit to abide with me.

+++++

But the heart that is Thy home,

Must form all taint of sin be free:

Oh Lord, in Thy mercy come,

Cleanse me from all iniquity.

+++++

Make me white and pure within,

Fit temple for Thy blest abode;

Soul and body free from sin,

And yielded wholly to my God.

+++++

Come!  On me Thy grace bestow;

I yield myself forever Thine:

Dwell in me, and through me show

Thy wondrous love, Thy power divine.
