Author: Rhabanus Maurus, c. 776-856; John Cosin, 1594-1672 Hymnal: African Methodist Episcopal Church Hymnal #194 (2011) Hymnal Title: African Methodist Episcopal Church Hymnal Lyrics: 1 Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire,
And lighten with celestial fire;
Thou the anointing Spirit art,
Who dost Thy sevenfold gifts impart.
2 Thy blessed unction from above
Is comfort, life, and fire of love.
Enable with perpetual light
The dullness of our blinded sight.
3 Anoint and cheer our soiled face
With the abundance of Thy grace.
Keep far our foes, give peace at home,
Where Thou art guide, no ill can come.
4 Teach us to know the Father, Son,
And Thee, of both, to be but one;
That through the ages, all along,
This may be our endless song:
Praise to Thy eternal merit,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Amen. Topics: The Holy Spirit; Holy Spirit Scripture: John 20:22 Languages: English Tune Title: MENDON
