 1  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.


 2  The Holy Word we have without,

       The Holy Spirit is within;

    The greatest gifts divine are these,

       That we may God enjoy therein.


 3  The Word the Spirit doth express,

       The Spirit its reality;

    They're but two aspects of one thing

       And should not separated be.


 4  Whene'er the Spirit lights the Word

       The Word becometh life to us;

    When Word from Spirit is divorced,

       'Tis empty mental stimulus.


 5  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.


 6  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.


 7  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.
