Jesus, by the Holy Spirit

May we all instructed be;

Sanctify us by the merit

Of Thy blest humanity.


Grant that we may love Thee truly;

Lord, our thoughts and actions sway,

And to every heart more fully

Thy atoning power display.


Lead us so that we may honor

Thee, the Lord our Righteousness,

And bring fruit to Thee, the Donor

Of all gospel-truth and grace.
