Representative Text

1 Spirit of wisdom, turn our eyes
From earth and earthly vanities
To heavenly truth and love;
Spirit of understanding true,
Our souls with heavenly light endue
To seek the things above.

2 Spirit of counsel, be our guide;
Teach us, by earthly struggles tried,
Our heavenly crown to win:
Spirit of fortitude, thy power
Be with us in temptation's hour,
To keep us pure from sin.

3 Spirit of knowledge, lead our feet
In Thine own paths, so safe and sweet,
By angel footsteps trod;
Where thou our guardian true shalt be,
Spirit of gentle piety,
To keep us close to God.

4 Through all our life be ever near,
Spirit of god's most holy fear,
In our heart's inmost shrine:
Our souls with awful reverence fill,
To worship His most holy will,
All-righteous and divine.

5 So lead, us, Lord, through peace or strife,
Onward to everlasting life,
To win our high reward:
So may we fight our lifelong fight,
Strong in Thine own unearthly might,
And reign with Christ, our Lord.
