Blessed Spirit For The Asking


Blessed Spirit, for the asking,
Thou didst come into my heart;
Oh, I ever would adore Thee,
Never, never from Thee part;
Blessed Spirit, how I love Thee!
Dwell Thou ever in my heart.

Refrain:
Oh, this well of living water,
Springing up within my soul!
Life eternal to me giving,
Praise the Lord, I now am whole.

Thou dost tell me, blessed Spirit,
That my soul is born of God;
Thou dost witness to the cleansing
Wrought within by Jesus’ blood;
I am happy, ever happy,
Since my heart is Thine abode. [Refrain]

Oh, this wondrous, blest anointing
Which within me doth abide,
Witnessing to Jesus’ merit-
In Thy guidance I confide;
Thou wilt lead me, Thou wilt bring me,
Bring me to my Savior’s side. [Refrain]

Now I taste of heaven’s sweetness,
For my Savior in me lives;
Oh, the richness and completeness
Of this rest the Spirit gives!
Ever lead me, heav’nward lead me,
Conqu’ring pow’r unto me give. [Refrain]
