     1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, 2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; 3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. 5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.(KJV)

1. Come, Holy Spirit, Come! 
Let Thy bright beams arise; 
Dispel the sorrow from our minds, 
The darkness from our eyes. 

2. Revive our drooping faith, 
Our doubts and fears remove, 
And kindle in our breasts the flame 
Of never-dying love. 

3. Convince us of our sin, 
Then lead to Jesus’ blood, 
And to our wondering view reveal 
The mercies of our God. 

4. ‘Tis Thine to cleanse the heart, 
To sanctify the soul, 
To pour fresh life into each part, 
And new-create the whole. 

5. Dwell, therefore, in our hearts; 
Our minds from bondage free; 
Then shall we know and praise and love 
The Father, Son, and Thee.

Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing
