Eternal Spirit (Uxbridge) 265b

Tune: Lowell Mason, 1830
Lyrics: William Bengo Collyer, 1812
Meter: Long Meter (8,8,8,8)
Thanks to the hand that set us free,
Eternal Spirit, thanks to thee,
Whose pow’r, resistless, unconfined,
Subdues the passion of the mind.

Subdued by love, and taught of God,
Rejoicing in redeeming blood,
We press to find that happy shore,
Where sin and sorrow reign no more.
