167. Gift of Christ from God Our Father

Gift of Christ from God our Father,
come, Spirit, come!
Well of life and generous giver,
come, Spirit, come!
With your light our minds enlighten,
with your grace our talents heighten,
with your joy our worship brighten,
come, Spirit, come!
Gift of Christ to guide and teach us,
come, Spirit, come!
Counselor so swift to reach us,
come, Spirit, come!
Christ is Lord, so may we name him,
never fearfully disclaim him,
but to all the world proclaim him.
Come, Spirit, come!
Gift of Christ to help us praying,
come, Spirit, come!
Advocate beside us staying,
come, Spirit, come!
In the work of intercession,
in the healing of confession,
in success and in depression,
come, Spirit, come!
Gift of Christ for our salvation,
come, Spirit, come!
Bring to birth your new creation,
come, Spirit, come!
All the devil’s work undoing,
Christ’s own ministry pursuing,
glory in the Church renewing!
Come, Spirit, come!
