Come, Thou Celestial Spirit, come. P. Doddridge. [Whitsuntide.] This hymn is undated in the D. MSS., where it begins, "Oh come, celestial Spirit, come." It was published in the altered form by J. Orton, in Doddridge's (posthumous) Hymns, &c, 1755, No. 285, in 4 stanzas of 4 lines, and again in J. D. Humphreys's edition of the same, 1S39. In the Baptist Praise Book, N. Y., 1871, stanza iv. is omitted.
