1 Eternal Spirit, ‘twas Thy breath
The oracles of truth inspired;
And kings and holy seers of old
With strong prophetic impulse fired.
2 Mov’d by the great almighty pow’r,
Their lips with heav’nly wisdom flow’d;
Their hands a thousand wonders wrought,
Which bore the signature of God.
3 With gladsome hearts they spread the news
Of pardon, thro’ a Saviour’s blood;
And to a num’rous seeking crowd
Mark’d out the path to His abode.
