E - ter-nal Spir - it! we con- fess, And sing the won - ders of
thy grace ;
Thy pow'r conveys our bless-ings down, From God, the Fa - ther, and the Son.
151. The Operations of the Holy Spirit. (317.)|105. The Teachings of the Spirit. (319.) 1 ETERNAL Spirit! we confess
1 COME, blessed Spirit! Source of light! And sing the wonders of thy grace;
Whose power and grace are unconfined, Thy power conveys our blessings down, Dispel the gloomy shades of night, From God, the Father, and the Son.
The thicker darkness of the mind. 2 Enlightened by thy heavenly ray,
2 To mine illumined eyes, display Our shades and darkness turn to day;
The glorious truths thy word reveals, Thine inward teachings make us know Cause me to run the beavenly way, Our danger, and our refuge too.
Thy book unfold, and loose the seals. 3 Thy power and glory work within, 3 Thine inward teachings make me know And break the chains of reigning sin;
The mysteries of redeeming love, Do our imperious lusts subdue,
The emptiness of things below, And form our wretched hearts anew.
And excellence of things above. 4 The troubled conscience knows tby voice, 4 While through this dubious maze I stray, Thy cheering words awake our joys;
Spread, like the sun, thy beams abroad, Thy words allay the stormy wind,
To show the dangers of the way,
And guide my feeble steps to God.

Prayer for spiritual Enjoyment.
(320.) 1 COME, sacred Spirit! from above,
1 COME, Holy Spirit ! calm my mind, And fill the coldest heart with love;
And fit me to approach my God; Soften to flesh the rugged stone,
Remove each vain, each worldly thought, And let thy godlike power be known.
And lead me to thy blest abode. 2 Speak thou, and, from the haughtiest eyes, 2 Hast thou imparted to my soul Shall floods of pious sorrow rise ;
A living spark of heavenly fire ? While all their glowing souls are borne Oh! kindle now the sacred flame;
To seek that grace, which now they scorn. Teach it to burn with pure desire. 3 Oh! let a holy flock await,
3 A brighter faith and hope impart, Numerous around thy temple-gate!
And let me now the Saviour see ; Each pressing on with zeal to be
Oh! soothe and cheer my burdened heart, A living sacrifice to thee.
Anå bid my spirit rest in thee.

Foro toos otecte Lotos Spir - it, heavenly Love! With all thy quickening pow'rs,
Come, Ho - ly
155. Breathing after the Holy Spirit. (321.) 3 Come as the fire ; and purge our hearts, 1 COME, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove !
Like sacrificial flame; With all thy quickeping powers, –
Let our whole soul an offering be Kindle a flame of sacred love,
To our Redeemer's name. In these cold hearts of ours.
| 4 Come as the dove; and spread thy wings, 2 Look-how we grovel here below,
The wings of peaceful love ; Fond of these triling toys!
And let thy church on earth become Our souls can neither fly nor go,
Blessed as the church above. To reach eternal joys.
5 Come as the wind; with rushing sound, 3 In vain we tune our formal songs,
And pentecostal grace, In vain we strive to rise ;
That all, of woman born, may see Hosannas languish on our tongues,
The glory of thy face. And our devotion dies.
Andrew Reed, 1841. 4 Dear Lord ! and shall we ever live, 157.
The Hope of Salvation. (323.) At this poor dying rate ? Our love so faint, so cold to thee, | 1 ETERNAL Spirit ! God of truth! And thine to us so great ?
Our contrite hearts inspire ;
Kindle the flame of heavenly love, 5 Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove! :)
And feed the pure desire.
2 'T is thine to soothe the sorrowing soul, And that shall kindle ours.
With guilt and fear oppressed ;
'T is thine to bid the dying live,
And give the weary rest. The Descent of the Spirit. (324.) 3 Subdue the power of every sin, 1 SPIRIT Divine ! attend our prayers,
Whate'er that sin may be ;
That we, in singleness of heart,
4 Then with our spirits witness bear, 2 Come as the light; to us reveal
That we 're the sons of God; Our emptiness and woe;
Redeemed from sin, and death, and hell, And lead us in those paths of lifc
Through Christ's atoning blood. Where all the righteous go.
Thomas Cotterill, 1810.
The Spirit of Adoption. (327) 3 The things of Christ the Spirit takes, 1 SPIRIT of holiness! look down,
And to our heart reveals ;
Our bodies he his temple makes,
And our redemption seals.
4 Come, Holy Spirit! from above, 2 The fear, which thy convictions wrought,
With thy celestial fire;
Come, and with flames of zeal and love,
Our hearts and tongues inspire.
Thomas Cotterill, 1810, a. 3 Now let thy saving mercy heal
The new-creating Spirit.
(329.) Now on our hearts impress thy seal, 1 SPIRIT of power and might! behold That we may doubt no more.
A world by sin destroyed ; 4 Complete the work thou hast begun,
Creator Spirit ! as of old, And make our darkness light, –
Move on the formless void. That we a glorious race may run,
2 Give thou the word ; that healing sound Till faith be lost in sight.
Shall quell the deadly strife, 5 Then, as the wondering eyes discern
And earth again, like Eden crowned,
Produce the tree of life.
3 If sang the morning stars for joy,
When nature rose to view,
When thou shalt all renew? 159. The Outpouring of the Spirit. (331.) 4 And, if the sons of God rejoice 1 LET songs of praises fill the sky!
To hear a Saviour's name, Christ, our ascended Lord,
How will the ransomed raise their voice, Sends down his Spirit from on high,
To whom the Saviour came? According to his word.
| 5 So every kindred, tongue, and tribe, 2 The Spirit, by his heavenly breath,
Assembling round the throne, New life creates within ;
The new creation shall aseribe He quickens sinners from the death .
To sovereign love alone. Of trespasses and sin..
James Montgomery, 1825.
161. The sanctifying Spirit. (334.) 3 Like mighty rushing wind 1 COME, Holy Spirit ! come;
Upon the waves beneath, Let thy bright beams arise ;
Move with one impulse every mind, Dispel the darkness from our minds,
One soul, one feeling breathe. And open all our eyes.
4 The young, the old inspire 2 Revive our drooping faith,
With wisdom from above ;
And give us hearts and tongues of fire, Our doubts and fears remove, And kindle in our breasts the flame
To pray, and praise, and love. Of never-dying love.
5 Spirit of light! explore, 3 Convince us of our sin;
And chase our gloom away, Then lead to Jesus' blood,
With lustre, shining more and more And to our wondering view reveal
Unto the perfect day. The secret love of God.
James Montgomery, 1819. 4 'Tis thine to cleanse the heart,
163. To sanctify the soul,
(337.) To pour fresh life on every part,
1 BLEST Comforter Divine! And new-create the wholt.
Whose rays of heavenly love 5 Dwell, therefore, in our hearts ;
Amid our gloom and darkness shine, Our minds from bondage free;
And point our souls above ;-
Dost stop the sinner's way,
Though earthly joys decay ;-
Can make the cloud of care, In this accepted hour,
And e'en the gloomy vale of death, As on the day of Pentecost,
A smile of glory wear ;Descend in all thy power.
4 Thou ! who dost fill the heart 2 We meet with one accord
With love to all our race ;In our appointed place,
Blest Comforter! to us impart And wait the promise of our Lord,
The blessings of thy grace. The Spirit of all grace.
