Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

To God the Holy Ghost

To God the Holy Ghost

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

To God the Holy Ghost
Let homage due be paid,
Who, when we sorrow most,
Comes with His heavenly aid,
And speaks the word alluring, kind,
That fills with peace the anxious mind.

Then winds their raging cease,
And billows sink to rest;
Our souls repose in peace,
As child on mother's breast;
Blest Spirit! there is naught to fear,
When Thou, our Comforter, art near.

Come then, Thou gracious Guest,
Our earnest prayers ascend;
Prepare Thyself a rest,
Abide our constant Friend;
Fulfil the promise Jesus made,
When sorrow on His soul was laid.

100
Oh, bid our darkness flee,
And with Thy light come in;
Our souls from trouble free,
And from the thrall of sin:
Blest Spirit! condescending, come,
And make our souls Thy chosen home.
