377. Holy Spirit, Hear Us

1 Holy Spirit, hear us;
help us while we sing;
breathe into the music
of the praise we bring.

2 Holy Spirit, shine now
on the book we read;
light its holy pages
with the truth we need.

3 Holy Spirit, prompt us
when we bow to pray;
speak within and teach us
what we ought to say.

4 Holy Spirit, help us
daily by your might,
what is wrong to conquer,
and to choose the right.
