399. Come, Spirit of God, holy Lord

1 Come, Spirit of God, holy Lord,
with all your graces now out-poured
on each believer's mind and heart;
your fervent love to them impart.
Lord, by the brightness of your light
in holy faith your church unite;
from every land and every tongue
this to your praise, O Lord, our God, be sung:
Alleluia, alleluia!

2 Come, Spirit of light, guide divine,
now cause the Word of life to shine.
Teach us to know our God aright
and call him Father with delight.
From every error keep us free;
let none but Christ our master be,
that we in living faith abide,
in him, our Lord, with all our might confide.
Alleluia, alleluia!

3 Come, Spirit of fire, comfort true,
grant us the will your work to do
and in your service to abide;
let trials turn us not side.
Lord, by your power prepare each heart,
and to our weakness strength impart
that bravely here we may contend,
through life and death to you, our Lord, ascend.
Alleluia, alleluia!
