Granted Is The Savior's Prayer

by Charles Wesley


No. 758


Granted is the Savior's prayer,
Sent the. gracious Comforter;
Promise of our parting Lord,
Jesus now to heaven restored;


2 Christ, who now gone up on high
Captive leads captivity;
While his foes from him receive
Grace, that God with man may live.


3 God, the everlasting God,
Makes with mortals his abode;
Whom the heavens cannot contain,
He vouchsafes to dwell in man.


4 Never will he thence depart,
Inmate of a humble heart;
Carrying on his work within,
Striving till he casts out sin.


5 There he helps our feeble moans,
Deepens our imperfect groans,
Intercedes in silence there,
Sighs the unutterable prayer.


6 Come, divine and peaceful Guest,
Enter our devoted breast;
Life divine in us renew,
Thou the Gift, and Giver too!
