God's glorious substance Spirit is,

His essence, holy and divine;

To contact God and Him enjoy,

His Spirit I must touch with mine.


The spirit is the innermost,

The part of man most deep and real;

If he would contact God in life,

'Tis with the spirit he must deal.


The worship which the Father seeks

Is in the spirit's strength alone;

His Spirit into man's would come,

That His and man's may thus be one.


When Spirit unto spirit calls

The two commingle and are one;

Man's spirit is the Spirit's home,

The Spirit doth man's life become.


Man's spirit must God's Spirit touch

If in God's fulness he would live;

'Tis only with the spirit thus

That he to God may worship give.


In ministry and fellowship

Man to the spirit we must bring;

All ministry should turn to prayer,

Spirit to spirit answering.


In spirit we must pray and serve,

In spirit touch the life divine,

In spirit grow, in spirit build,

That Christ thru us may fully shine.


Lord, to the spirit I would turn

And learn to truly contact Thee;

Thy Spirit thus will flow with mine

And overflow eternally.
