AGAIN, indulgent Lord, return,
With sweet and quickening grace,
To cheer and warm our sluggish souls,
And speed us in our race.

Awake our love, our faith, our hope,
For fortitude and joy;
Vain world begone-let things above
Our happy thoughts employ.

Whilst thee, our Saviour and our God,
We would forever own;
Drive each rebellious rival, thrust
Each traitor from the throne.

Instruct our minds, our souls subdue,
To heaven our passions raise,
And let our life forever be
Devoted to thy praise.
