My heart is Your dwelling,

Come abide with me;

Fill me with Your Spirit,

I am Yours eternally.


Fashion this dwelling,

My Lord, as You see fit;

The center is the Throne

Upon which You shall sit.


Lay a foundation of humility,

Erect the beams of trust;

Rid my heart of worries,

From the cobwebs and the rust.


Open the windows

To Your eternal truth and light;

Grant that it is brilliant

Dawn of day or dark of night.


Warm this dwelling

With the fire of Your love;

Decorate it with virtues,

Shining treasures from above.


May Your peace reign

In the waterfalls that flow;

May Your joy abide

In the flowers as they grow.


May the angels worship

As they sing around Your throne;

My heart is Yours to keep,

My Lord, I am Your own.


In the center of it all,

By the throne on which You reign,

Shines the glory of the Cross:

Your love intersected with pain.


How can I deny You, Jesus,

When Your Cross I see?

Reign here in my heart, Lord,

Reign here eternally.


I give You my life, my heart,

I desire to give no less;

Your Kingship in my life,

My Jesus, I humbly confess.


How I love You, Lord,

Transform me to fit Your desire;

My heart is Your dwelling,

Your flame of love its fire.

Yea, my heart is Your dwelling,

Forever abide with me;

Fill me with Your Spirit,

I am Yours eternally.
