Spirit of God, Descend Upon My Heart -Day 17

Today a hymn:

"Spirit of God, descend upon my heart;
 Wean it from earth, through all its pulses move;
 Stoop to my weakness, mighty as Thou art,
 And make me love Thee as I ought to love.

 Teach me to feel that Thou art always nigh;
 Teach me the struggles of the soul to bear,
 To check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh;
 Teach me the patience of unanswered prayer.

 Teach me to love Thee as Thine angels love,
 One holy passion filling all my frame;
 The baptism of the heav'n-descended Dove,
 My heart an altar; and Thy love the flame."

George Croly


A little confession....we were out all day and then spent the evening watching the debate. I didn't have time to write an in-depth post. :)
