Be all Thy graces now outpoured
2 Thou strong Defense, Thou holy Light,
Teach us to know our God aright,
3 Thou sacred Ardor, Comfort sweet,
Help us to wait with ready feet,
GRACIOUS Spirit, Dove divine !
Let Thy light within me shine;
2 Speak Thy pardoning grace to me,
Set the burdened sinner free;
3 Life and peace to me impart,
Seal salvation on my heart;
4 Let me never from Thee stray,
Keep me in the narrow way;
193 COME, gracious Spirit, heav'nly Dove,
With light and comfort from above; Be Thou our Guardian, Thou our Guide; O’er ev'ry thought and step preside.
2 The light of truth to us display,
And make us know and choose Thy way;
3 Lead us to Christ, the living Way,
Nor let us from His precepts stray;
4 Lead us to heaven, that we may share
Fullness of joy forever there;
194 COME, Holy Ghost, Creator blest,
Vouchsafe within our souls to rest; Come with Thy grace and heav'nly aid, And fill the hearts which Thou hast made.
2 To Thee, the Comforter, we cry,
To Thee, the Gift of God most high,
3 The sev'nfold gifts of grace art Thine,
O Finger of the hand divine;
4 Thy light to ev'ry thought impart,
And shed Thy love in every heart;
5 Drive far away our wily foe,
And Thine abiding peace bestow;
6 Make Thou us to the Father known;
Teach us th' eternal Son to own,
7 Praise we the Father and the Son,
And Holy Spirit, Three in One;
195 HOLY Spirit! hear us
On this sacred day;
Come with us to stay.
2 Come as Thou once camest
To the faithful few, Patiently awaiting
Jesus' promise true.
3 Up to heav'n ascending
Our dear Lord has gone; Yet His little children
Leaves He not alone.
+ To His blesséd promise
Now in faith we cling: Comforter, most holy !
Spread o'er us Thy wing.
5 Lighten Thou our darkness,
Be Thyself our light; Strengthen Thou our weakness,
Spirit of all might!
6 Spirit of blessed unction!
Make us overflow
And in grace to grow.
7 Into Christ baptized
Grant that we may be, Day and night, dear Spirit,
Perfected by Thee!

HOLY Spirit, enter in,
Among these hearts Thy work begin,
