Christ is the Word and Spirit too
|Christ is the Word and Spirit too,
And as the Spirit in the Word;
And all the words He speaks to us
Are life and spirit thus conferred.
|The Holy Word we have without,
The Holy Spirit is within;
The greatest gifts divine are these,
That we may God enjoy therein.
|The Word the Spirit doth express,
The Spirit its reality;
They’re but two aspects of one thing
And should not separated be.
|Whene’er the Spirit lights the Word
The Word becometh life to us;
When Word from Spirit is divorced,
’Tis empty mental stimulus.
|When we the Word in spirit touch,
As life the Spirit it becomes;
The Spirit, when expressed from us,
As words of life to others comes.
|Our spirit we must exercise
To take the Word most inwardly,
And then to give the Spirit forth;
The two as one with us should be.
|Lord, may Thy Word in me become
The Spirit as my life supply,
And may Thy Spirit in Thy Word
My true expression be thereby.
