230. Holy Spirit, God of Love

Holy Spirit, God of Love,
Who our night dost brighten,
Poured on us from heav’n above,
Now our faith enlighten.
In Thy light we gather here;
Show us that Christ’s promise clear
Its Amen forever.
Jesus, our ascended Lord,
Oh, fulfill Thy gracious Word:
Bless us with Thy favor!
