Author: Timothy Rees, 1874-1939 Hymnal: Evangelical Lutheran Worship #582 (2006) Meter: 184.108.40.206 D Lyrics: 1 Holy Spirit, ever dwelling in the holiest realms of light;
Holy Spirit, ever brooding o'er 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 us 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;
quick'ning, strength'ning, and absolving, setting captive sinners free;
Holy Spirit, ever binding age to age and soul to soul
in communion never ending,
you we worship and extol. Topics: Adoration; Pentecost, Holy Spirit; Vocation, Ministry; Adoration; Pentecost, Holy Spirit; Praise, Thanksgiving; Vocation, Ministry Languages: English Tune Title: IN BABILONE
