SPIRIT of faith, come down,
   Reveal the things of God;
And make to us the Godhead known,
    And witness with the blood.
    ’Tis Thine the blood to apply,
    And give us eyes to see
Who did for guilty sinners die
    Has surely died for me.
2      No man can truly say
    That Jesus is the Lord,
Unless Thou take the veil away,
    And breathe the living word;
    Then, only then, we feel
    Our interest in His blood,
And cry, with joy unspeakable:
    Thou art my Lord, my God!
3      Inspire the living faith,
    Which whosoe’er receives,
The witness in himself he hath,
    And consciously believes;
    The faith that conquers all,
    And doth the mountain move,
And saves whoe’er on Jesus call,
    And perfects them in love.
Charles Wesley, 1707-88
