Songs of Day and Night.
X. Indwelling—Dwelling in
By Alexander B. Grosart (1835–1899)
 
St. John vi. 56.

O DWELL in me, my Lord,
  That I in Thee may dwell;
Fulfil Thy tender word,
  That Thy evangels tell;
In me Thou, I in Thee        5
By Thy sweet courtesy.
 
But wilt Thou my guest be,
  In this poor heart of mine?
Thy guest? Is this for me,
  In that pure heart of Thine?        10
In me Thou, I in Thee,
By Thy sweet courtesy.
 
Thy chamber, Lord, prepare.
  Whither Thou deignest come;
I may not seek to share        15
  The making of Thy home;
In me Thou, I in Thee,
By Thy sweet courtesy.
 
Thy gracious gifts bestow,
  Humility and love;        20
O cause my heart to glow
  By fire sent from above;
In me Thou, I in Thee,
By Thy sweet courtesy.
