256a. O King enthroned on high

1 O King enthroned on high,
thou Comforter divine,
blest Spirit of all truth, be nigh
and make us thine.

2 Thou art the source oflife,
thou art our treasure-store;
give us thy peace and end our strife
for evermore.

3 Descend, O heavenly Dove,
abide with us alway;
and in the fullness of thy love
cleanse us, we pray.
