The Holy Spirit

Image of tune Land of Rest (may not be posted yet)

182 (C.M.) Robert Seagrave

Now may the Spirit's holy fire,

Descending from above,

His waiting family inspire

With joy, and peace, and love!

Wake heav'nly wind, arise and come,

Blow on the drooping field;

Our spices then shall breathe perfume,

And fragrant incense yield.

Touch with a living coal the lip

That shall proclaim Thy word;

And bid each careless hearer keep

Attention to the Lord.

Then shall we prove Thy worship sweet,

And love Thy sacred courts,

Where saints in blest communion meet,

And God, our God, resorts.
