COME, HOLY SPIRIT.
MEAR. C. M.
This tune may be sung in double (2-4) time.
With all thy quickening powers,
In these cold hearts of ours.
Fond of these trifling toys;
To reach eternal joys.
At this poor dying rate?
And thine to us so great ?
With all thy quickening powers;
And that shall kindle ours.
THE SPIRIT'S WORK.
EASTNOR. S. M.
COME Holy Spirit, come;
Let thy bright beams arise ;
The darkness from our eyes.
Then lead to Jesus' blood,
The secret love of God.
3 Revive our drooping faith,
Our doubts and fears remove,
Of never-dying love.
4 'Tis thine to cleanse the heart,
To sanctify the soul,
And new create the whole.
5 Come, Holy Spirit, come;
Our minds from bondage free.
The Father, Son, and Thee.
TO THE HOLY GHOST.
OLY GHOST, with light divine,
Shine upon this heart of mine;
Turn my darkness into day.
Cleanse this guilty heart of mine;
Held dominion o'er my soul.
Cheer this saddened heart of mine;
Heal my wounded, bleeding heart.
Dwell within this heart of mine;
WAITING FOR THE PROMISE.
ASHWELL. L. M.
O SPIRIT of the living God,
In all thy plenitude of grace,
Descend on our apostate race.
To preach the reconciling word;
Where'er the joyful sound is heard.
Confusion-order, in thy path;
Bid mercy triumph over wrath.
The triumphs of the cross record;
Till every kindred call him Lord.
246 ENLIGHTENING Grace.
QUEBEC. L. M.
I COME, blesséd Spirit! source of light!
Whose power and grace are unconfined,
The thicker darkness of the mind.
The glorious truth thy word reveals;
Thy book unfold, and loose the seals.
3 Thine inward teachings make me know
The mysteries of redeeming love,
And excellence of things above.
4 While through this dubious maze I stray,
Spread, like the sun, thy beams abroad,
And guide my feeble steps to God.
THE WITNESSING SPIRIT.
LUDWIG. 76,76; 77,76.
I BLESSED Comforter, come down,
And live and move in me; Make
my every deed thy own, In all things led by thee; Bid each evil thought depart,
Now with me vouchsafe to dwell; Faithful Witness, in my heart
Thy perfect love reveal. 2 Let me in thy love rejoice,
Thy shrine, thy pure abode;
I am a child of God:
Lord, I wait thy peace to feel;
The Holy Ghost reveal.
THE SPIRIT OF ADOPTION.
REFUGE. C. M.
WHY should the children of a King
Go mourning all their days?
Some tokens of thy grace.
And seal the heirs of heaven?
And show my sins forgiven?
In the Redeemer's blood;
That I am born of God.
The pledge of joys to come;
Will safe convey me home.
· HOLY GHOST, the Infinite!
Shine upon our nature's night
Comforter Divine !
We are faint: thy strength afford;
