Hymn/Song Information

Hear us Thou that broodest Over the




Hear us, Thou that broodest
O’er the wat’ry deep,
Waking all creation
From its primal sleep:
Holy Spirit, breathing
Breath of life, Divine,
Breathe into our spirits,
Blending them with Thine.

Light and Life immortal!
Hear us as we raise
Hearts as well as voices,
Mingling prayer and praise.



When the sun ariseth
In a cloudless sky,
May we feel Thy presence,
Holy Spirit, nigh;
Shed Thy radiance o’er us,
Keep it cloudless still,
Through the day before us,
Perfecting Thy will.

Light and Life immortal!
Hear us as we raise
Hearts as well as voices,
Mingling prayer and praise.



When the fight is fiercest
In the noontide heat,
Bear us, Holy Spirit,
To our Saviour’s feet;
There to find a refuge
Till our works is done,
There to fight the battle
Till the battle’s won.

Light and Life immortal!
Hear us as we raise
Hearts as well as voices,
Mingling prayer and praise.



If the day be falling
Sadly as it goes,
Slowly in its sadness
Sinking to its close,
May Thy love in mercy,
Kindling ere it die,
Cast a ray of glory
O’er our evening sky.

Light and Life immortal!
Hear us as we raise
Hearts as well as voices,
Mingling prayer and praise.



Morning, noon, and evening,
Whereso’er it be,
Grant us, gracious Spirit,
Quick’ning life in Thee—
Life, that gives us, living,
Life of heavenly love;
Life, that brings us, dying,
Life from heaven above.

Light and Life immortal!
Hear us as we raise
Hearts as well as voices,
Mingling prayer and praise.
