1 O Holy Ghost, thy people bless
who long to feel thy might,
and fain would grow in holiness
as children of the light.
2 To thee we bring, who art the Lord,
ourselves to be thy throne;
let ev'ry thought and deed and word
thy pure dominion own.
3 Life-giving Spirit, o’er us move,
as on the formless deep;
give life and order, light and love,
where now is death or sleep.
4 Great gift of our ascended King,
his saving truth reveal;
our tongues inspire His praise to sing,
our hearts his love to feel.
5 True wind of heav’n, from south or north,
for joy or chast'ning, blow;
the garden-spices shall spring forth
if thou wilt bid them flow.
6 O Holy Ghost, of sev'nfold might,
all graces come from thee;
grant us to know and serve aright
one God in Persons Three.
