1 Holy Spirit, Comfort blest,
In Thy care we safely rest,
Safer than on mother's bosom;
Let Thy word within us blossom,
Till in grace we are complete.
2 Holy Spirit, lest we fall,
Quicken us and guide us all
That we always, onward pressing,
Never from Thy hand digressing,
Keep the straight and narrow way.
3 Holy Spirit, when we grieve,
Let Thy comfort us relieve;
Should with kin no more we gather,
We in heaven have a Father,
Whom we never, never lose.
4 Holy Spirit, guard us well,
Lest our willful hearts impel
Us to question God in blindness,
Him, whose ev'ry act is kindness;
Be His will forever done!
5 Holy Spirit, true and kind,
Help us always bear in mind
That our God will gladly hear us
And with grace be ever near us
When we pray in Jesus' name.
