84. Holy Spirit

1 Holy Spirit, while we gather
At this consecrated hour,
We would ask Thy presence with us,
We would feel Thy quick’ning pow’r.

Refrain:
Holy Spirit, while we gather,
From our toil and labor free,
Rest upon us, dwell within us,
Close our hearts to all but Thee.

2 Blessed Spirit, through Thy teaching,
While we read our Saviour’s word
And with Him we hold communion,
May His loving voice be heard. [Refrain]

3 O ‘tis pray’r that brings the blessing
When all other joys have flown,
Pray’r that makes our burdens lighter,
Draws us near our Father’s throne. [Refrain]
