336. Spirit, Strength of All the Weak

1 Spirit, strength of all the week,
giving courage to the meek,
teaching falt'ring tongues to speak;
hear us, Holy Spirit.

2 Spirit, aiding all who yearn
more of truth divine to learn,
and with deeper love to burn;
hear us, Holy Spirit.

3 Spirit, fount of faith and joy,
giving peace without alloy,
hope that nothing can destroy;
hear us, Holy Spirit.

4 Source of love and light divine,
with that hall'wing grace of thine,
more and more upon us shine;
hear us, Holy Spirit.

5 Holy, loving, as thou art,
come and live within our heart,
never from us to depart;
hear us, Holy Spirit.

6 May we soon, from sin set free,
where thy work may perfect be,
Jesus' face with rapture see:
hear us, Holy Spirit.
