504b. 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 of life,
thou art our treasure-store;
give us thy peace, and end our strife
for evermore.

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