Jesus, We on the Words Depend

Jesus, we on the words depend,
Spoken by Thee while present here,
“The Father in My name shall send
The Holy Ghost, the Comforter.”

That promise made to Adam’s race,
Now, Lord, in us, e’en us, fulfill;
And give the Spirit of Thy grace
To teach us all Thy perfect will.

That heavenly Teacher of mankind,
That Guide infallible, impart,
To bring Thy sayings to our mind,
And write them on our faithful heart.

That peace of God, that peace of Thine,
O might He now to us bring in,
And fill our souls with power divine,
And make an end of fear and sin!

Charles Wesley

Copied from my grandmother’s hymnal, Hymn Book, Methodist Episcopal Church, South: Nashville, TN, 1901, Hymn #168.

Note: The hymns in this hymnal are not titled. So when I do not know the hymn, I make up a title or simply use the first line.
