110a. Come, Holy Spirit, From Above

1 Come, Holy Spirit, from above,
And kindle in our hearts thy love;
In all our darkness on us shine,
And fill us with thy grace divine.

2 The only Comforter Thou art;
Oh, come and dwell within each heart;
And give us power from above
To keep the blessed law of love.

3 Enlighten every darkened heart,
And faith and hope to each impart;
what else we need thou well dost know,
This let Thy love and grace bestow.

4 In thy blest gifts on us outpoured,
Thou art the right hand of the Lord;
The Word of Truth Thou sendest forth,
In tongues of fire to all the earth.

5 Defend us from our wily foe,
And upon us Thy peace bestow;
Keep us securely all our days
In Thy blest covenant of grace.

6 Show us the Father's love and care,
And of the Son Thy witness bear;
To Both thou showest us the way,
Spirit of Both, adored for aye.

7 To God the Father, God the Son
For precious gifts be honor done;
And for the Spirit's gracious power
Be praise and glory evermore.
