#167: Holy Spirit, Now Outpoured

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Holy Spirit, now outpoured

Sent by our ascendend Lord,

Bless our gath’ring  here today,

Be our hallowed Guest, we pray.

2

Fill each hearth and reign alone,

Break the idols we have known;

Lead us to confession true,

Give us strength Thy will to do.

3

Guide into all truth, we plead,

Light the Holy Page we read;

Write in precepts deep within,

Till we’re kept from ev’ry sin.

4

May Thy quick’ning pow’r we feel —

Human doubt and weakness heal;

May Thy presence, like a fire,

Burn within — our zeal inspire.
