Abide in me, Lord, deep within my heart

Abide in me, Lord, deep within my heart,
Make Your abode within my deepest part!
Lord, may Your Spirit make His home in me,
Thus all my being Your abode will be.
Your Spirit with my spirit is the key—
A mutual dwelling place for You and me!
By this organic union that we share
We have become by grace one loving pair.
By faith I have been joined to You, dear Lord,
Now our two spirits are in one accord!
Thus joined and mingled, I abide in You,
In thought, intention, and in all I do.
“Abide in Me and I’ll abide in you,”
Both a commandment and a promise true!
We may much fruit unto the Father bear
As we abide in Him whose life we share.
