Sunday Hymnary: “Spirit of Faith, Come Down” by Charles Wesley, 1746

Spirit of faith, come down, reveal the things of God,
And make to us the Godhead known, and witness with the blood.
Thou dost the blood apply and give us eyes to see,
That He Who did for sinners die hath surely died for me.

No man can truly say that Jesus is the Lord,
Unless Thou take the veil away, and breathe the living Word.
Then, only then, we feel our intr’est in His blood,
And cry with joy unspeakable, “Thou art my Lord, my God!”

O that the world might know the all atoning Lamb!
Spirit of faith, descend and show the virtue of His Name;
The grace which all may find, the saving pow’r, impart;
And testify to all mankind, and speak in every heart.

Inspire the living faith, which whosoe’er receives,
The witness in himself he hath, and consciously believes;
That faith that conquers all, and doth the mountain move,
And saves whoe’er on Jesus call, and perfects them in love.
