By His Spirit
© 2011 Tom D Blakely
There is life that dwells within us
That is different to our own;
Which is holy which is spirit
Who in us has made His home.
Everyone who trusts in Jesus
Will receive the Holy Ghost,
Though it’s down to individuals
Who will make of Him the most. . . .
We’re in touch, with our God, by His Spirit
We’re in touch, with our God, by His Spirit.
There’s an open line to heaven
When we call in Jesus’ name;
But we spoil communications
When we sin or cause Him shame.
God is faithful to forgive us
For His Son, our Saviour’s sake,
This we never take for granted
But confession often make. . . .
When we’re troubled He brings comfort
When we’re dull He gives us light.
If we trust Him as our teacher
He will show us wrong from right.
He is Holy He is powerful
And His presence deep within,
Reassures us of salvation
And our future home in heaven. . . .
‘And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you for ever; the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know him; for He dwells with you, and will be in you.’
