We Praise Thee for Thy Spirit, Lord
by Arthur Cutting
We praise Thee for Thy Spirit, Lord,
The blessed Holy Ghost,
The promised Comforter from heaven,
Who came at Pentecost.
We praise Thee for His sovereign grace,
That broke our darkness through;
And wrought within us by Thy word
A birth divinely new.
We praise Thee that He is the Seal,
Whereby we’re marked as Thine,
Until redemption’s day shall dawn,
And we in glory shine.
We praise Thee for the Earnest given,
Of blessings yet in store,
The great inheritance which we
Shall share for evermore.
We praise Thee that the Unction sent
Abides in us for aye,
To be our Teacher, Guide and Strength,
Along life’s upward way.
We praise Thee for those ties divine
That bind Thy saints to Thee,
As members of Thy body one—
The Spirit’s unity.
We praise Thee for the work which He
Hath in our souls begun,
To form in us a transcript here
Of God’s beloved Son.
