Representative Text

1 Come, Holy Spirit, from above,
And kindle in our hearts Thy love;
In all our darkness on us shine,
And fill us with Thy grace divine.

2 The only Comforter Thou art;
O come and dwell within each heart,
And give us power from above
To keep the blessèd law of love.

3 Enlighten every darkened heart,
And faith and hope to each impart;
What else we need Thou well dost know,
This let Thy love and grace bestow.

4 In Thy blest gifts on us outpoured,
Thou art the right hand of the Lord;
The Word of Truth Thou sendest forth
In tongues of fire to all the earth.

5 Defend us from our wily foe,
Upon us now Thy peace bestow;
Keep us securely all our days
In Thy blest covenant of grace.

6 Show us the Father's love and care,
And of the Son Thy witness bear;
To both Thou showeth us the way,
Spirit of both, adored for aye.

7 To God the Father, God the Son,
For precious gifts be honor done;
And for the Spirit's gracious power
Be praise and glory evermore.

Amen.
