Come, dearest Lord, descend and dwell
1. Come, dearest Lord, descend and dwell,
By faith and love, in every breast;
Then shall we know, and taste, and feel
The joys that cannot be expressed.
2. Come, fill our hearts with inward strength,
Make our enlarged souls possess,
And learn the height, and breadth, and length,
And depth of thine unmeasured grace.
3. Now to the God whose power can do
More than our thoughts or wishes know,
Be everlasting honours done,
By all the church, through Christ his Son.
