Holy Spirit, God of love, Who our night dost brighten, Poured on us from Heav’n above, Now our faith enlighten. In Thy light we gather here; Show us that Christ’s promise clear Its Amen forever. Jesus, our ascended Lord, Oh, fulfill Thy gracious Word: Bless us with Thy favor!
Thou great mysterious God unknown, Whose love hath gently led me on, E’en from my infant days, Mine inmost soul expose to view, And tell me if I ever knew Thy justifying grace, Thy justifying grace.
If I have only known Thy fear, And followed, with a heart sincere, Thy drawings from above, Now, let the further grace bestow, And let my sprinkled conscience know Thy sweet forgiving love, Thy sweet forgiving love.
Father, in me reveal Thy Son, And to my inmost soul make known How merciful Thou art; The secret of Thy love reveal, And by Thy hallowing Spirit dwell Forever in my heart, Forever in my heart!
If now the Witness were in me, Would He not testify of Thee, In Jesus reconciled? And should I not with faith draw nigh, And boldly, “Abba, Father,” cry, And know myself Thy child, And know myself Thy child?
