Hymn/Song Information

Holy Ghost dispel our sadness pierce the




Holy Ghost, dispel our sadness;
pierce the clouds of nature's night;
come, thou source
of joy and gladness,
breathe thy life, and spread thy light.
From the height
which knows no measure,
as a gracious shower descend,
bringing down the richest treasure
we can wish, or God can send.


Author of the new creation,
come with unction and with power.
Make our hearts thy habitation;
with thy grace our spirits shower.
Hear, oh, hear our supplication,
blessed Spirit, God of peace!
Rest upon this congregation,
with the fullness of thy grace.

Holy Ghost, dispel our sadness;
Pierce the clouds of nature’s night;
Come, great Source
of joy and gladness,
Breathe Your life,
and spread Your light.
From the height
which knows no measure,
As a gracious shower descend,
Bringing down the richest treasure
Man can wish, or God can send.


Author of the new creation,
Come with blessing and with power.
Make our hearts your habitation;
On our souls Your graces shower.
Hear, O hear our supplication,
Blessèd Spirit, God of peace!
Rest upon this congregation,
With the fullness of Your grace.
