Hymn/Song Information

O Holy Spirit whom our Master sent




O Holy Spirit, whom
our Master sent
rich with all treasures
from the throne above,
we pray thee for
thy gift most excellent,
thy greatest, thine
unfailing gift of love.


Thy grace abounds;
the written word is ours;
and Satan trembles
at the might of prayer:
the shield of faith
can quell the evil powers,
and hope's bright helmet
save us from despair.


These yet abide;
but we would covet still
one gift, exalted faith
and hope above;
grant us the
new commandment to fulfill,
and even as Jesus
loved us, so to love.


Grant us to follow
his long-suffering path,
joying in truth, yet
helping them that fall,
to think no evil,
give no place to wrath,
but bear, believe,
endure and hope for all.


So when at length we know
as we are known,
and all the shadows
are for ever past,
he who is Love
may see in us his own,
and all in him be perfect love at last.
