Suggested Tune HE LIFTED ME ( and refrain)

1. The God who laid the earth and sea,       Genesis 1:1   Acts 17:24

    the Lord who made both you and me,

    the Monarch of eternity,

    His Spirit dwells in me!

O Comforter, come show me truth!      John 14:17

O Counsellor, come strengthen me!

Teach me to love as Jesus loves.     John 14:15,21
Breath of Life, come live in me!       


2. Now if we look with searching eyes,

    at haunting sunset's paint streaked skies

    can we discern the Artist's hand?            Acts 17:27

    His Spirit dwells in me!


3.  And if your Spirit dwells here true

    Lord Jesus, as it dwelt in you,       

    Then shape me as you'd have me be

    Your Spirit dwells in me!


4. The Father's love was shown in you;

    All His fullness dwelt in you                  Colossians 1:19

    and while you sit at His right hand -   1 Peter 2:22

    Your Spirit dwells in me!


5. So now I go to shout your praise,       Psalm 66:1-2

    To live in trust, obey your ways,         John 14:15,21

    To love and serve for all my days

    Your Spirit dwells in me!
