Thou, Father, who art Spirit true

Thou, Father, who art Spirit true,
  The holiest of all;
We worship in the spirit now,
  In truth upon Thee call.
A spirit Thou hast made for us
  That we may worship Thee,
That echoing in spirit thus
  One spirit we will be.
The Father in the Son has come,
  The Son the Spirit is,
That to our spirit God may come.
  O what a grace is this!
The Son is Thine eternal Word,
  The Word is Spirit too;
The Spirit as our life has come
  Our spirit to renew.
Thy Spirit in our spirit is,
  And thus in unity
Thy Spirit witnesseth with ours
  That we are born of Thee.
In everything Thy Spirit leads
  That we may follow Him;
We thus may spiritual become,
  With life and peace within.
In spirit we would worship Thee,
  In spirit Thee address,
Until our spirit is released
  Thine image to express.
Our Father, we would praise Thee now
  That Thou the Spirit art;
In spirit and in truth to Thee
  True worship we impart.

I enjoyed vs. 3 this morning singing to our Father in spirit.

The Father in the Son has come,

The Son the Spirit is,

That to our spirit God may come.

O what a grace is this.

John 4:23 - But  a an hour is coming, and it is now, when the true worshippers will worship the Father  b in spirit and truthfulness, for the Father also seeks such to worship Him.

John 4:24 -  God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truthfulness.

Cutler’s hymn taught us the Lord’s word to us the human worship of God is in our human spirit which is born into us when we believed (John 3: 3, 6, 7; 3:15). The music mingled our regenerated being, our regenerated soul, into the true worship O God!

The music to this hymn was composed by Henry Steven Cutler. He was born October 13, 1825, Boston Massachusetts and died December 5, 1902 at his home in Swampscott, Massachusetts, about 12 miles north of Boston.

Henry was the son of Roland Cutler and Martha Richardson, and husband of Ellen McNorah. They were married in 1833. He studied organ under Aaron Upjohn Hayster, organist of Trinity Church in Boston Massachusetts.

In 1844, he went to Europe to continue his studies in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. While abroad, he visited many English cathedrals and became familiar with their style of music. In 1852, he became organist at the Church of the Advent, Boston, and, in 1858, organist and choirmaster at Trinity Church, New York City. He also played at the churches in Brooklyn, New York; Providence, Rhode Island; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Troy, New York; and Newark, New Jersey.

Romans 10:9

In truth upon thee call!


We worship in the spirit now!!

Mentioning Spirit and spirit nineteen times, this hymn repeatedly speaks about the relationship between the Holy Spirit and our human spirit. I hope that you will all pay attention to this matter.
