Hymn 838 in Christian Worship:

Uphold me in the doubtful race.
Nor suffer me again to stray;
Strengthen my feet with steady pace
Still to press forward in Thy way;
My soul and flesh, O Lord of might.
Transfigure with Thy heavenly light.

Jo­hann Scheff­ler, 1657 trans­lat­ed by John Wes­ley

Richard Sibbes, 1638

and then unction follows after ; when we are united to Christ by the Spirit, then He works the same in us, as He did in Christ.
