The Holy Spirit

Image of tune Adieu (may not be posted yet)

172 (L.M.) Isaac Watts

Eternal Spirit! we confess

And sing the wonders of Thy grace;

Thy power conveys our blessings down

From God the Father and the Son.

Enlightened by Thy heav'nly ray,

Our shades and darkness turn to day;

Thine inward teachings make us know

Our danger, and our refuge too.

Thy pow'r and glory work within,

And break the chains of reigning sin.

Do our imperious lusts subdue,

And form our wretched hearts anew.

The troubled conscience knows Thy voice,

Thy cheering words awake our joys;

Thy words allay the stormy wind,

And calm the surges of the mind.
