JOSEPH IN EGYPT

As Joseph’s wisdom’s words were proved,
Telling how Egypt should begin
The Pharaoh’s admiration moved
To say God’s Spirit dwelt within.

No doubt the Spirit guided, for
Whatever Joseph’s place or role;
As brother, slave or governor
He showed an equal self-control.

And now, in truth, God’s Spirit dwells
Within the faithful hearts of saints
To exercise the power that wells
In praises, and in sin’s restraints.
