"Tender Dove - A Poem"


Tender Dove
Holy Spirit from above,
Tender, undefiled Dove,
In my spirit have Your way,
O'er my actions hold full sway.
Blest Companion from on high,
In Your comfort ever nigh;
Bind my heart to Christ in love,
O You precious, Heavenly Dove.
This cold heart and these dull eyes,
So unfit for Paradise,
Fire with Your sacred flame,
Show the power of Jesus' Name.
Weak I in myself may be,
But my strength shall be in Thee,
Sweet provision of God's grace;
In Your gift His love I trace.
I could not Your coming earn,
Could no more Your wooing spurn,
Take control and bless and use
As the Infinite shall choose.
