“THE MISSION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT”……H.A. Ironside

“Oh the peace of full surrender!
    All my joy to do His will!
Mine to trust His faithful promise;
    His the promise to fulfil
Oh the glory and the rapture
    Thus to dwell with Christ the Lord;
New delight and wisdom gaining
    From the study of His Word.
Pleasure’s songs no more entice me,
    Nor the bugle note of Fame;
Sweeter far the holy music
    Of my dear Redeemer’s name.
Oh the glory and the rapture—
    Earthly burdens pass away!
Stormy winter turns to summer;
    Lonely darkness into day.”
(excerpt from H.A. Ironside’s “The Mission of the Holy Spirit”)
