148. Holy Spirit, Truth Divine

Holy Spirit, Truth divine!
Dawn upon this soul of mine;
Word of God and inward Light,
Wake my spirit, clear my sight.

Holy Spirit, Love divine!
Glow within this heart of mine;
Kindle every high desire,
Perish self in thy pure fire.

Holy Spirit, Power divine!
Fill and nerve this will of mine;
By thee may I strongly live,
Bravely bear, and nobly strive.

Holy Spirit, Joy divine!
Gladden thou this heart of mine;
In the desert ways I sing:
“Spring, O Well, forever spring.”

Holy Spirit, Peace divine!
Still this restless heart of mine;
Speak to calm this tossing sea,
Strong in thy tranquility.
