2. Come, Thou, oh come ;
Help in the hour of need,
3. Come, Thou, oh come ;
Glorious and shadow-free,
4. Come Thou, oh come;
Joy in life's narrow path,
Latin tr. G. Moultrie.
The Pathways of the Spirit.
OW dost Thou come, O Comforter ?
In heavenly glory dressed,
With lilies on Thy breast?
In visions rapt and high,
Betwixt the earth and sky?
2 Not always thus—for Thou dost stoop
To our poor common clay,
Too impotent to pray.
Or penitential psalm,
Or incense, breathing balm.
3. How does God send the Comforter ?
Perchance through faith intense ;
Of sight, or sound, or sense.
Shall breathe the voice divine,
Pour for thee heavenly wine !
4. How will God send the Comforter ?
Thou knowest not, nor I !
His hand hath hung on high ;
His twilight hush its peace,
Julia C. R. Dorr.
Come Holy Spirit !
IO. IO. IO. IO.
1. SPIRIT of God, descend upon my heart
And make me love Thee as I ought to love.
2. I ask no dream, no prophet ecstasies,
No sudden rending of the veil of clay,
But take the dimness of my soul away.
Teach me the struggles of the soul to bear,
Teach me the patience of unanswered prayer. 4. Teach me to love Thee as Thine angels love,
One holy passion filling all my frame,
258. Spiritual Power.
C.M. 1. SPIRIT of Wisdom! guide Thine own,
Who make Thee now their choice,
But hear Thy heavenly voice.
That this world never saw !
The wonders of Thy law.
Of sorrow and dismay,
And chase all doubt away.
Nerve Thy young soldiers' arms;
And banish hell's alarms.
Are now but darkly shown;
Lead them on resurrection wings,
To know as they are known.
The joys of heavenly grace ;
Of saints who see Thy face.
Dread reverence of Thy name;
J. H. Butterworth,
259. Father, Son, and Spirit.
Give praise to Him the streams who fills ;
That sparkles in the blue afar ! 2. Give praise to Him who wakes the morn, And bids it glow with beams new-born;
Who draws the shadows of the night,
Like curtains, o'er our wearied sight ! 3. Give praise to Him whose love has given, In Christ His Son, the life of heaven ;
Who for our darkness gives us light,
And turns to day our deepest night ! 4. Give praise to Him who sheds abroad Within our hearts the love of God;
The Spirit of all truth and peace,
The Fount of joy and holiness !
To Thee, eternal God ! we raise
1. HOLY, Holy, Holy, Lord
God of Hosts ! when heaven and earth,
Issued into glorious birth,
2. Holy, Holy, Holy ! Thee
One Jehovah evermore,
Dust and ashes, would adore;
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord !
Heaven's triumphant choirs shall sing:
At the footstool of their King,
Creator, Saviour, Guide. 8.8.8. 1. CREATOR, Saviour, strengthening Guide,
Now on Thy mercy's ocean wide,
