Our Great Benefactor

Oh what peace and great contentment
The Spirit will impart,
When we open wide our spirit’s door,
And welcome Him into our heart.

We often bear a needless cross,
And suffer too, to no avail.
We fret and worry, sometimes feud;
We strive with might, and yet we fail.

But when we yield our hearts to Him,
Give Him preeminence in our life,
He leads us in the ways of peace,
And lifts us up above the strife.

He heals our wounds, our aches and pains,
And comforts us when we are sad.
He feeds our hungry spirit too;
I’ve let Him in, and I am glad.
