The promised Comforter.
ORD, we believe to us and ourg
We wait the pentecostal powers,

The Holy Ghost sent down from heaven.
2 Assembled here with one accord,

Calmly we wait the promised grace,
The purchase of our dying Lord;

Come, Holy Ghost, and fill the place.
3 If every one that asks may find,

-
If still thou dost on sinners fall,
Come as a mighty rushing wind;

Great grace be now upon us all.
4 Ah! leave us not to mourn below,

Or long for thy return to pine;
Now, Lord, the Comforter bestow,

And fix in us the Guest divine.

The Father in my name shall send

The Holy Ghost, the Comforter.

Now, Lord, in us, we pray, fulfil;
And give the Spirit of thy grace,

To teach us all thy perfect will.

That Guide infallible, impart,
To bring thy sayings to our mind,
And write them on each faithful heart.

3d P. M. 4 68 & 2 89. Pleading the promise. 0

THOU that hearest prayer,

Attend cur humble cry;
And let thy servants share

Thy blessing from on high :
We plead the promise of thy word ;-
Grant us thy Holy Spirit, Lord !
2 If earthly parents hear

Their children when they cry;
If they, with love sincere,

Their children's wants supply;
Much more wilt thou thy love display,
And answer when thy children pray.
8 Our heavenly Father, thou;

We, children of thy grace ; () let thy Spirit now

Descend and fill the place ;
That all may feel the heavenly flame,
And all unite to praise thy Name.
