“No man can say that Jesus is the Lord….” 1 Cor. 12. 3

C. Wesley                        S.M.

1
Spirit of truth, come down,
Reveal the things of God;
O make to us salvation known,
And witness with the blood.

2
No man can truly say
That Jesus is the Lord,
Unless thou take the veil away,
And breathe the living word.

3
Then, only then, we feel
Our interest in his blood;
And cry, with joy unspeakable,
“Thou art my Lord, my God!”

4
O that we now might know
The all-atoning Lamb!
Spirit of faith, descend and show
The virtue of his name.

5
Inspire the living faith,
Which whosoe’er receives,
The witness in himself he hath,
And joyfully believes.
