377. Spirit of God, on This Great Day Inspire

1 O Holy Ghost, on this great day inspire
our souls, we pray, with pentecostal fire.
Lord, breathe upon us with your heav'nly wind,
that it refresh and purify our mind.

2 Kindle within us and preserve that fire,
which will with holy love our breast inspire,
and with an active zeal our soul inflame
to do your will and glorify your name.

3 Endow us richly with your gifts and grace
to fit us for the duties of our place;
so open now our lips, our hearts so raise,
that both our hearts and lips may give you praise.
