850. O Thou Gentle Spirit

1 Oh, what a joyful assurance
The gentle Spirit brings!
Oh, let us honor and rev’rence
His name above all kings.

Refrain:
O Thou gentle Spirit,
Pure, sweet angel dove;
Live in my heart, ever cheer it
With tender words of love.

2 Sweet is the peaceful emotion
That fills my inmost soul;
Blissful and heavenly token,
That Jesus makes me whole. [Refrain]

3 Tranquilly resting in Jesus,
For I am now His own;
Sweet is the promise that greets us,
“I’ll leave thee not alone.” [Refrain]

4 I will adore thee forever;
Oh, live and reign in me!
Jesus, my Savior and keeper,
Oh, help me trust in Thee. [Refrain]
