Representative Text

1 O Holy Spirit be Thou with us now,—
Still hover o’er us while in pray’r we bow;
Pity our weakness, bid our struggles cease;
Come, Holy Spirit, come and give us peace!

2 O Holy Spirit, Comforter divine!
Make us Thy temples, in our actions shine;
Kindle within us holy, heav’nly love,
Rising in purest flame to God above.

3 Come, Holy Spirit, promise of our Lord!
Bring to remembrance all His gracious word;
Show us the truth, be Thou our heav’nly Guide,
And in our heart of hearts do Thou abide.

4 Spirit divine, O be our constant guest!
Then shall our souls with holy calm be blest;
Filled with Thy presence, cleansed from every sin,
Naught but our Saviour’s love can enter in.
