“He shall not speak of himself.” John 16. 13; 15. 26
J. Hart C.M.
Whatever prompts the soul to pride,
Or gives us room to boast,
Except in Jesus crucified,
Is not the Holy Ghost.
That blessed Spirit omits to speak
Of what himself has done,
And bids the enlightened sinner seek
Salvation in the Son.
He never moves a man to say,
“Thank God, I’m made so good,”
But turns his eye another way,
To Jesus and his blood.
Great are the graces he confers,
But all in Jesus’ name;
He gladly dictates, gladly hears,
“Salvation to the Lamb.”
