7420. Who But Thou, Almighty Spirit?

1. Who but Thou, almighty Spirit,
Can the heathen world reclaim?
Men may preach, but till Thou favor,
Heathens will be still the same:
Mighty Spirit,
Witness to the Savior’s name.

2. Thou hast promised by the prophets,
Glorious light in latter days;
Come and bless bewildered nations,
Change our prayers and tears to praise:
Promised Spirit,
Round the world diffuse Thy rays.

3. All our hopes, and prayers, and labors,
Must be vain without Thine aid:
But Thou will not disappoint us;
All is true that Thou hast said:
Gracious Spirit,
O’er the world Thine influence spread.
