Sealed by the Spirit

Grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Eph. 4:30

Forbid it, Lord, that we
Who from thy hands receive
The Spirit's power to make us free,
Should e'er that Spirit grieve.

O keep our faith alive,
Help us to watch and pray;
Lest, by our carelessness, we drive
The sacred Guest away.
