1 Draw, Holy Ghost, Thy seven-fold veil
Between us and fires of youth;
Breathe, Holy Ghost, Thy fresh'ning gale
Our fevered brow in age to soothe.
2 For ever on our souls be traced
This blessing from the Saviour's hand,
A sheltering rock in memory's waste,
O'ershadowing all the weary land.
Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, 1871
