Hymn/Song Information

Holy Ghost dispel our sadness pierce the

Holy Ghost, dispel our sadness,
Pierce the clouds of sinful night;
Come, Thou source of sweetest gladness,
Breathe Thy Life, and spread Thy Light !
Loving Spirit, God of Peace !
Great Distributor of grace !
Rest upon this congregation,
Hear, O hear our supplication !

From that height which knows no measure
As a gracious shower descend,
Bringing down the richest treasure
Men can wish, or God can send !
O Thou Glory, shining down
From the Father and the Son,
Grant us Thy illumination !
Rest upon this congregation !

Known to Thee are all recesses
Of the earth and spreading skies ;
Every sand the shore possesses
Thy Omniscient Mind descries.
Holy Fountain ! wash us clean
Both from error and from sin !
Make us fly what Thou refusest,
And delight in what Thou choosest !

Manifest Thy love for ever ;
Fence us in on every side ;
In distress be our reliever,
Guard and teach, support and guide!
Let Thy kind effectual grace
Turn our feet from evil ways ;
Show Thyself our new Creator,
—And conform us to Thy Nature !

Be our Friend on each occasion,
God ! omnipotent to save !
When we die, be our salvation,
When we're buried, be our grave !
And, when from the grave we rise,
Take us up above the skies,
Seat us with Thy saints in glory,
There for ever to adore Thee !
