Dawn upon me

Where the lines have fallen, signs of dawn.

And a rest.

A deeper rest… a better rest.

A bigger heart – with broadened boundaries. A heart that will eventually be able to hold a better dream.

Yet it is a ‘dream’ only to me. For in God’s plan, it has always been reality.

*

Holy Spirit, Truth divine,
Dawn upon this soul of mine;
Word of God and inward light
Wake my spirit, clear my sight.

Holy Spirit, Love divine,
Glow within this heart of mine;
Kindle every high desire;
Perish self in Thy pure fire.

Holy Spirit, Power divine
Fill and nerve this will of mine;
Grant that I may strongly live,
Bravely bear, and nobly strive.

Holy Spirit, Right divine,
King within my conscience reign;
Be my Lord, and I shall be
Firmly bound, forever free.

Holy Spirit, Peace divine,
Still this restless heart of mine;
Speak to calm this tossing sea,
Stayed in Thy tranquility.
