410. Holy Spirit, ever dwelling

1 Holy Spirit, ever dwelling
in the holiest realms of light;
Holy Spirit, ever brooding
on a world of gloom and night;
Holy Spirit, ever raising
those of earth to thrones on high;
living, life-imparting Spirit,
you we praise and magnify.

2 Holy Spirit, ever living
as the church's very life;
Holy Spirit, ever striving
through her in a ceaseless strife;
Holy Spirit, ever forming
in the church the mind of Christ;
you we praise with endless worship,
for your gifts and fruits unpriced.

3 Holy Spirit, ever working
through the church's ministry;
quickening, strengthening, and absolving,
setting captive sinners free;
Holy Spirit, ever binding
age to age, and soul to soul,
in a fellowship unending,
you we worship and extol.
