Representative Text

1 I worship Thee, O Holy Ghost.
I love to worship Thee.
My risen Lord for aye were lost
But for Thy company.

2 I worship Thee, O Holy Ghost.
I love to worship Thee.
I grieved Thee long, alas! Thou knos'st
It grieves me bitterly.

3 I worship Thee, O Holy Ghost.
I love to worship Thee.
Thy patient love, at what a cost.
At last it conquered me!

4 I worship Thee, O Holy Ghost.
I love to worship Thee.
With Thee each day is Pentecost,
Each night Nativity.
