318. Gracious Spirit, Holy Ghost

1 Gracious Spirit, Holy Ghost,
Taught by You, we covet most
Of Your gifts at Pentecost,
Holy, heavenly love.

2 Love is kind and suffers long;
Love is meek,and thinks no wrong;
Love than death itself more strong;
Therefore give us love.

3 Prophecy will fade away,
Melting in the light of day;
Love will ever with us stay;
Therefore give us Love.

4 Faith and hope and love we see,
Joining hand in hand agree,
But the greatest of the three,
And the best, is love.
