376. Put Forth, O Lord, Thy Spirit's Might

1 Put forth, O God, thy Spirit's might
and bid thy Church increase
in breadth and length and depth and height
her unity and peace.

2 Let works of darkness disappear
before thy conqu'ring light;
let hatred and tormenting fear
pass with the passing night.

3 Let what apostles learned of thee
be ours from age to age;
their steadfast faith, our unity;
their peace, our heritage.

4 O Judge divine of human strife!
O Vanquisher of pain!
to know thee is eternal life,
to serve thee is to reign.
