YOME, thou Almighty King,
Help us thy name to sing,
Ancient of Days!
2 Come, thou all-gracious Lord ! By heaven and earth adored,
Our prayer attend !
On us descend !
3 Never from us depart;
Hence, evermore !
Love and adore !
F. H. HEDGB.
We invoke thy quickening power ;
Bless the purpose of this hour.
2 Holy and creative Light!
We invoke thy kindling ray;
Turn our darkness into day.
3 To the anxious soul impart
Hope all other hopes above;
With a longing and a love.
4 Work in all, in all renew,
Day by day, the life divine;
All our hearts to thee incline.
Love divine, thyself impart : Every fainting soul inspire ;
Enter cvery drooping heart :
2 Every mournful sinner cheer,
Scatter all our guilty gloom;
To thy human temples come.
3 Come, in this accepted hour,
Bring thy heavenly kingdom in; Fill us with thy glorious power,
Rooting out the seeds of sin.
4 Nothing more can we require,
We will covet nothing less ;
Be our heaven, in holiness!
The Divine Spirit.
And make our hearts thy home;
Come, Holy Spirit, come !
2 Come as the light; to waiting minds
That long the truth to know, Reveal the narrow path of right,
The way of duty show.
3 Come as the fire ; enkindle now
The sacrificial flame,
In love's redeeming name.
4 Come as the dew ; on hearts that pino
Descend in this still hour,
With joy thy quickening power.
All holicst strength, all purest love,
The brooding of the gentle dove,
2 Forever lend thy sovereign aill,
And urge us on, and keep us thine ;
Fit temples of thy grace divine. .
8 Nor let us quench thy saving light;
But still with softest breathings stir Our wayward souls, and lead us right,
O Holy Spirit, Comforter !
Within these souls of thine to rest ;
2 Come, Holy Spirit I now descend;
Most blessed gift which God can send ;
3 With patience firm and purpose high,
The weakness of our flesh supply ;
