The United Methodist Hymnal


O Come and Dwell in Me

1.	O come and dwell in me, 
	Spirit of power within, 
	and bring the glorious liberty 
	from sorrow, fear, and sin.

2.	Hasten the joyful day 
	which shall my sins consume, 
	when old things shall be done away, 
	and all things new become.

3.	I want the witness, Lord, 
	that all I do is right, 
	according to thy mind and word, 
	well-pleasing in thy sight.

4.	I ask no higher state; 
	indulge me but in this, 
	and soon or later then translate 
	to thine eternal bliss.
