Gracious Spirit

Lyrics: Thomas T. Lynch
Composer: Peter B. Allen

Gracious Spirit, dwell with me:
I myself would gracious be,
And with words that help and heal
Would Thy life in mine reveal;
And with actions bold and meek
Christ’s own gracious spirit speak.
Truthful Spirit, dwell with me:
I myself would truthful be,
And with wisdom kind and clear
Let Thy life in mine appear;
And with actions brotherly
Follow Christ’s sincerity.
Mighty Spirit, dwell with me:
I myself would mighty be,
Mighty, that I may prevail
Where unaided man must fail;
Ever by triumphant hope
Pressing on and bearing up.

Gracious Spirit, dwell with me:
Truthful Spirit dwell with me:
Mighty Spirit, dwell with me:
Gracious Spirit, dwell with me:
I myself would gracious be,
And with words that help and heal
Would Thy life in mine reveal;
And with actions bold and meek
Christ’s own gracious spirit speak.
Truthful Spirit, dwell with me:
I myself would truthful be,
And with wisdom kind and clear
Let Thy life in mine appear;
And with actions brotherly
Follow Christ’s sincerity.
Mighty Spirit, dwell with me:
I myself would mighty be,
Mighty, that I may prevail
Where unaided man must fail;
Ever by triumphant hope
Pressing on and bearing up.

Gracious Spirit, dwell with me
Truthful Spirit dwell with me
Mighty Spirit, dwell with me.
