2 Come as the light; to waiting minds
3 Come as the fire; enkindle now
Till our whole souls an offering be,
The Divine Spirit.
1 SPIRIT divine! attend our prayer,
Invoking God's Aid.
1 FATHER in heaven, to thee my heart
3 Here then, my God, be pleased to stay,
2 Each moment of my life renews

Aid against Sin.
ETERNAL Spirit, God of truth,
2 Subdue the power of every sin,
2 Forever lend thy sovereign aid,
And urge us on, and keep us thine; Nor leave the hearts which thou hast Fit temples of thy grace divine. [made 3 Nor let us quench thy saving light;
But still with softest breathings stir Our wayward souls, and lead us right, O Holy Spirit, Comforter!
1 ANOTHER six days' work is done,
4 In holy duties let the day
In holy pleasures-pass away:
1 OH, come, Creator Spirit blest,
Come, Holy Spirit! now descend; Most blessed gift which God can send ; Thou Fire of Love, and Fount of Life! Consume our sins, and calm our strife. With patience firm and purpose high, The weakness of our flesh supply; Kindle our senses from above, And make our hearts o'erflow with love. 14
Pleasure of God's Service.
1 SWEET is the work, my God, my King, To praise thy name, give thanks, and To show thy love by morning light, [sing; And talk of all thy truth at night.
Sweet is the day of sacred rest;
My heart shall triumph in my Lord, And bless his works, and bless his word, Thy works of grace, how bright they shine! How deep thy counsels! how divine' 4 Lord, I shall share a glorious pa When grace hath well refined my heart, And fresh supplies of joy are shed, Like holy oil to cheer my head.
