375. Lord God, the Holy Ghost

1 Lord God, the Holy Ghost,
in this accepted hour,
as on the day of Pentecost,
descend with all thy power.

2 We meet with one accord
in our appointed place,
and wait the promise of our Lord,
the Spirit of all grace.

3 Like mighty rushing wind
upon the waves beneath,
move with one impulse, ev'ry mind,
one soul, one feeling breathe.

4 The young, the old inspire
with wisdom from above;
and give us hearts and tongues of fire
to pray and praise and love.

5 Spirit of light, explore
and chase our gloom away,
with luster shining more and more
unto the perfect day.

6 Spirit of truth, be thou
in life or death our guide;
O Spirit of adoption, now
may we be sanctified.
