6287. Spirit, Strength of All the Weak

1. Spirit, strength of all the weak,
Giving courage to the meek,
Teaching faltering hopes to speak;
Hear us, Holy Spirit.

2. Spirit, aiding all who yearn
More of truth divine to learn
And with deeper love to burn;
Hear us, Holy Spirit.

3. Spirit, Fount of faith and joy,
Giving peace without alloy,
Hope that nothing can destroy;
Hear us, Holy Spirit.

4. Source of love and light divine,
With that hallowing grace of Thine,
More and more upon us shine;
Hear us, Holy Spirit.

5. Holy, loving, as Thou art,
Come and live within our heart,
Never from us to depart;
Hear us, Holy Spirit.

6. May we soon, from sin set free,
Where Thy work may perfect be,
Jesus’ face with rapture see:
Hear us, Holy Spirit.
