Hymn/Song Information

O gentle sweet and tender love




O gentle, sweet, and tender Love!
Greatest and best Thou art!
Thou comest on Thine angel-wing
Straight from our Father’s heart.

Spirit of Love, expand Thy wings,
Brood o’er my heart today;
Fill me with heav’nly tenderness
As now to Thee I pray.



God sendeth Thee,
His messenger,
From His bright home above;
And surely all that is of Thee
Are His, for “God is Love!”

Spirit of Love, expand Thy wings,
Brood o’er my heart today;
Fill me with heav’nly tenderness
As now to Thee I pray.



Faith leadeth us
through earthly life
Down to the gates of death:
There stays;
for where “they see His face”
They have no need of faith.

Spirit of Love, expand Thy wings,
Brood o’er my heart today;
Fill me with heav’nly tenderness
As now to Thee I pray.



Hope cometh to the threshold fair,
But cannot pass it o’er;
For there our hopes are all fulfilled,
For ever, evermore.

Spirit of Love, expand Thy wings,
Brood o’er my heart today;
Fill me with heav’nly tenderness
As now to Thee I pray.



But love goes through
the pearly gates
Into the city blest,
And flies on pinions swift and sure
Straight to our Father’s breast.

Spirit of Love, expand Thy wings,
Brood o’er my heart today;
Fill me with heav’nly tenderness
As now to Thee I pray.
