While the Spirit Passes By

Acts 1:8

 

There are wants my heart is telling

While the Spirit passes by,

And with hope my soul is swelling

While the Spirit passes by.

O what prospects now I see,

What a life my life must be,

If Thy seal is placed on me,

While the Spirit passes by.

There are sins my lips confessing

While the Spirit passes by,

Treasures long my heart possessing,

While the Spirit passes by.

All the world’s delight and cheer,

All the things I held so dear,

Ah, how worthless they appear

While the Spirit passes by.

Here I stand, myself disdaining,

While the Spirit passes by;

Stand in faith, Thy mercy claiming,

While the Spirit passes by;

Let Thy power my soul refine,

Let Thy grace my will incline,

Take my all and make it Thine,

While the Spirit passes by.

Herbert Booth, The Salvation Army Song Book
