THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT




Eternal Spirit! we confess
And sing the wonders of thy grace;
Thy power conveys our blessings down
From God the Father and the Son.


Enlightened by thine heavenly ray,
Our shades and darkness turn to day;
Thine inward teachings make us know
Our danger and our refuge too.


Thy power and glory work within,
And break the chains of reigning sin;
Do our imperious lusts subdue,
And form our wretched hearts anew.


The troubled conscience knows thy voice,
Thy cheering words awake our joys;
Thy words allay the stormy wind,
And calm the surges of the mind.


Now cause the dead in sin to live,
Fresh life unto the living give;
Make all our sins and fears to cease,
And guide us unto perfect peace.


---Alternative verses---


Thy mighty power doth work within,
And break the chain of reigning sin,
The grace our passions can subdue,
And form each sinnerís heart anew.
