2 Conduct us safe, conduct us far

From every sin and hurtful snare;
Lead to Thy word that rules must give,

And teach us lessons how to live. 3 The light of truth to us display, And make us know and choose Thy way: Plant holy fear in every heart, That we from God may ne'er depart. 4 Lead us to holiness-the road

That we must take to dwell with God:
Lead us to Christ-the living way,

Nor let us from His pasture stray. 5 Lead us to God, our final rest,

In His enjoyment to be blest;
Lead us to heaven, the seat of bliss,
Where pleasure in perfection is.

S.M. 292 Quicken us, and we will call upon

Thy name.-Ps. 80, 18. 1

YOME, Holy Spirit, come! And on this poor benighted soul

With beams of mercy shine. 2 From the celestial hills,

Light, life, and joy dispense;
And may I daily, hourly feel

Thy quickening influence ! 3 O melt this frozen heart,

This stubborn will subdue;
Each evil passion overcome,

And form me all anew. 4 The profit will be mine,

But Thine shall be the praise;
Cheerful to Thee will I devote
The remnant of my day

S.M. 293 I will put my Spirit within you.

Ezek. 36, 27.
COME, Holy Spirit, come!

Let Thy bright beams arise;
Dispel all sorrow from our minds,

All darkness from our eyes. 3 Convince us of our sin;

Then lead to Jesus' blood;
And to our wondering view reveal
The secret love of God.

3 Revive our drooping faith,

Our doubts and fears remove; And kindle in our hearts the flame

of never-ceasing love.
4 Tis Thine to cleanse the heart,

To sanctify the soul,
To pour fresh life in every part,

And new-create the whole.
5 Dwell, therefore in our hearts;

Our minds from bondage free;
Then shall we know, and praise, and

The Father, Son, and Thee.

294 He will guide you into all truth.

John 16, 13. 1 COME,Holy Ghost, our hearts inspire,

us Source of the old prophetic fire,

Fountain of light and love. 2 Come, Holy Ghost, for moved by Thee

The prophets wrote and spoke; Unlock the truth, Thyself the key,

Unseal the sacred book. 3 Expand Thy wings, celestial Dove,

Brood o'er our nature's night: On our disordered spirits move,

And let there now be light. 4 God through Himself, we then shall

know, If Thou within us shine; And sound, with all Thy saints below,

The depths of love divine.

C.M. 295 He shall teach you all things.-John

14, 26. 1 TERNAL Spirit, by whose power Onourcold hearts Thy blessings shower,

Revive them with Thy breath.
2 Tis Thine to point the heavenly way,

Each rising fear control,
And with a warm enlivening ray,

Set free the ice-bound soul.

3 Tis Thine to cheer us when distrest,

To raise us when we fall; To calm the doubting, troubled breast,

And aid when sinners call. 4 Tis Thine to bring God's sacred word,

And write it on our heart; There its reviving truths record,

And there its peace impart. 5 Almighty Spirit, visit thus

Our hearts, and guide our ways: Pour down Thy quickening grace on us, And tune our lips to praise.

Of the pure flame which seraphs feel,

And hear His speaking blood.
Give us that for which He prays:

Show His truth, and power, and grace,

And send the promise down.
