Hymn 180
Our blest Redeemer, ere he breathed

1 Our blest Redeemer, ere he breathed his tender last farewell, a Guide, a Comforter, bequeathed with us to dwell. 2 He came in tongues of living flame, to teach, convince, subdue; all-powerful as the wind he came, as viewless too. 3 He came sweet influence to impart, a gracious, willing guest, when he can find one humble heart wherein to rest. 4 And his that gentle voice we hear, soft as the breath of even, that checks each fault, that calms each fear, and speaks of heaven. 5 And every virtue we possess, and every victory won, and every thought of holiness, are his alone. 6 Spirit of purity and grace, our weakness, pitying, see; O make our hearts thy dwelling-place, and worthier thee.
