#265, #547


God created us His vessels

His expression to achieve;

Thus He made a heart to love Him

And a spirit to receive.


With our heart we have to love Him,

With our spirit Him possess

As our life, of Him partaking,

That Himself we may express.


Satan has our heart corrupted,

To our spirit death did give,

That the Lord we should not contact

But by self attempt to live.


Thus the Lord in His salvation

Heart and spirit has renewed

To recover our receiving

And our loving aptitude.


It is by our heart's renewal

We may God in love pursue,

And in newness of the spirit

We may contact God anew.


Ever true and pure and single

To the Lord our heart must be,

Poor in spirit, ever seeking

God to contact constantly.


Keep our heart, Lord, in love's freshness,

And our spirit strengthen more,

That in newness of the spirit

We may touch Thee o'er and o'er.
