Far from our souls be driven;
The wheat into thy garner bring,
And lay us up for heaven.

3 Whate'er offends thy glorious eyes,

As dust before the whirlwind flies,
Disperse it by thy love.

4 Then let us all thy fullness know,
From every sin set free;
Saved to the utmost, saved below,
And perfected in thee.
