1 Our Lord, his Passion ended
Hath gloriously ascended,
Yet though from him divided,
He leaves us not unguided;
All his benefits to crown
He hath sent his Spirit down,
Burning like a flame of fire
His disciples to inspire.

2 God's Spirit is directing;
No more they sit expecting;
But forth to all the nation
They go with exultation;
That which God in them hath wrought
Fills their life and soul and thought;
So their witness now can do
Work as great in others too.

3 The centuries go gliding,
But still we have abiding
With us that Spirit holy
To make us brave and lowly -
Lowly, for we feel our need:
God alone is strong indeed;
Brave, for with the Spirit's aid
We can venture unafraid.

4 O Lord of every nation,
Fill us with inspiration;
We know our own unfitness;
Yet for thee would bear witness.
By the Spirit now we raise
To the heavenly Father praise:
Holy Spirit, Father, Son,
Make us know thee, ever One. Amen.
