175. Gracious Spirit--Love divine!

1 Gracious Spirit--Love divine!
Let Thy light within me shine;
All my guilty fears remove;
Fill me with Thy heavenly love.

2 Speak thy pardoning grace to me;
Set the burdened sinner free;
Lead me to the Lamb of God;
Wash me in His precious blood.

3 Life and peace to me impart;
Seal salvation on my heart;
Dwell Thyself within my breast,
Earnest of immortal rest.

4 Let me never from Thee stray,
Keep me in the narrow way;
Fill my soul with joy divine;
Keep me, Lord, for ever Thine.
