Go when the day de cli - neth, Go in the hush of night; Pray, too, for those who hate thee, If an - y such there be. Should ho-ly thoughts come o'er thee, When friends are round thy way

Re-mem-ber in thy glad - ness, His love Who gave thee all.

Go with pure heart and feel - ing, Cast earth - ly thoughts a · way,
Then for thy-self, in meek-ness, A bless -ing hum - bly claim;
E'en then, in si - lence breathingThe spir - it, raised a bove,
Oh! not a joy or bless - ing With this we can com - pare,

And in thy chamber kneel-ing, Do thou in se- cret pray.
And link with each pe : ti - tion Thy great Redeemer's Name.
Will reach the throne of glo · ry, Of mer-cy, truth, and love.
The power which He has giv-en, Tap-proach His throne of prayer. Amen.

1. Dwell in me, O bless - ed Spir - it, How I need Thy help di - vine! 2. Let me feel Thy sa-cred pres-ence, Then my faith will ne'er de- cline; 3. Round the cross where Thou hast led me, Let my pur - est feel-ings twine; 4. Dwell in me, O bless - ed Spir · it, Gracious Teacher, Friend di- vine;

In the way of life e ter - nal, Keep, oh, keep this heart of mine. Comfort Thou and help me on-ward, Fill with love this heart of mine. With the blood from sin that cleansed me, Seal a - new this heart of mine. For the home of bliss that waits me, Oh, pre-pare this heart of mine.

Spir - it, now from heaven descending, Come, oh, come and dwell in me.
