“He shall not speak of himself.” John 16. 13; 15. 26

J. Hart                                                C.M.

1
Whatever prompts the soul to pride,
Or gives us room to boast,
Except in Jesus crucified,
Is not the Holy Ghost.

2
That blessed Spirit omits to speak
Of what himself has done,
And bids the enlightened sinner seek
Salvation in the Son.

3
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.

4
Great are the graces he confers,
But all in Jesus’ name;
He gladly dictates, gladly hears,
“Salvation to the Lamb.”
