by Henry Alline (1748 - 1784)

O for the spirit of the Dove
Language: English 
O for the spirit of the Dove,
  To bow this heart of mine! 
Lord let my soul enjoy thy love, 
  And find a peace divine.

O for the meekness of the Lamb, 
  To walk with thee, my God! 
Then should I feel thy lovely name, 
  And feed upon thy word.

Jesus, I long to love thee more, 
  And life divine pursue;
I love thy worship, name adore,
  In songs forever new.
