Hymns using same tune:

#399, #737, #809


 1  Exercise the spirit!

    Human thought reject;

    Meet with one another,

    Body life respect.


 2  Exercise the spirit!

    All the forms forsake;

    Share with one another,

    Each of Christ partake.


 3  Exercise the spirit!

    Natural sense renounce;

    Serve with one another,

    Christ the Lord announce.


 4  Exercise the spirit!

    Soulish life deny;

    Helping one another,

    On the Lord rely.


 5  Freed within the spirit

    From self-righteousness,

    From self-condemnation,

    And self-consciousness.


 6  Freed within the spirit

    From self-will and pride,

    From self-love and glory,

    All to override.


 7  Exercise the spirit,

    Victory to claim

    By the blood which cleanses

    And the mighty Name.


 8  Exercise the spirit

    Thus to touch the Lord;

    Ever by the spirit

    Take Him thru His Word.


 9  It is by the spirit

    Christ is testified;

    It is by the spirit

    Man is satisfied.


 10  Exercise the spirit!

    This is what we need!

    Exercise the spirit!

    May the Lord so lead!
