231. Lord God, the Holy Ghost

1 LORD God, the Holy Ghost,
in this accepted hour,
As on the day of Pentecost,
Descend in all Thy power!

2 We meet with one accord
In our appointed place,
And wait the promise of our Lord,
The Spirit of all grace.

3 Like mighty rushing wind
Upon the waves beneath,
Move with one impulse every mind,
One soul, one feeling breathe.

4 The young, the old inspire
With wisdom from above,
And give us hearts and tongues of fire
To pray, and praise, and love.

5 Spirit of Light, explore
And chase our gloom away,
With lustre shining more and more
Unto the perfect day!

6 Spirit of Truth, be Thou
In life and death our Guide!
O Spirit of Adoption, now
May we be sanctified.
