[Alternative Tunes Nos. 31, 218.] HERE in Thy presence, dread and sweet, Spirit of Knowledge ! lead our feet IT O HOLY GHOST, we Thee entreat In Thine own paths so safe and sweet, Thy sevenfold Gifts to shed

By Angel footsteps trod ; On us, who fall before Thee now,

Where Thou our Guardian true shalt be, Bearing the Cross upon our brow,

Spirit of gentle Piety! On which our Master bled.

To keep us close to GOD. Spirit of Wisdom ! turn our eyes

But most of all be ever near, From earth and earthly vanities,

Spirit of God's most Holy Fear! To heavenly truth and love ;

In our hearts' inmost shrine : Spirit of Understanding true !

Our souls with awful reverence fill, Our souls with heavenly light endue,

To worship His most Holy Will, To seek the things above.

All righteous and divine. Spirit of Counsel ! be our Guide ;

So, dearest LORD, through peace or strife, Teach us, by earthly struggles tried, Lead us to everlasting life, Our heavenly crown to win ;

To win our high reward : Spirit of Fortitude ! thy power

So may we fight our lifelong fight, Be with us in temptation's hour,

Strong in Thine own unearthly might, To keep us pure from sin.

i And reign with Christ our LORD.

Amen.

[Alternative Tunes Nos. 26, 265.]
STRONG in our Great Captain, JESUS, LORD of might,

Clad in GOD's own armour, armour of pure light;
Girt with truth's firm girdle, ready for the fray;
Breast-plate bright of justice, worn both night and day.
Let Faith's glorious buckler guard each valiant heart,
Save it from the poison of the tempter's dart ;
Helmet of salvation; and the well-tried sword--
Of the Holy Bible--GOD's most sacred Word.
O young Christian soldiers, armed thus for the fight, i
Brave and pure and faithful, keep your armour bright,
Now before God's Altar, true and loyal stand
Ready for the battle, ready, heart and hand;
Vows of firm allegiance joyfully renew,
Which in Holy Baptism once were made for you,
And when life is over and the battle won,
You shall hear Christ's welcome--"Faithful one, well done !"

Amen.

[Alternative Tunes Nos. 17, 55, 235.]
TITHIN Thy holy temple,

I must with fear and trembling
O everlasting LORD,

In adoration bow,
May Thy most awful Presence

For Thou, O blessed JESUS,
Be lovingly adored.

Art on the Altar now.

May no vain word be uttered,

May no bad thought arise, As here we meet to offer

The Christian Sacrifice.

I kneel in Thy dear Presence,

A weak and sinful child,
Accept me, blessed Saviour,

Most merciful and mild.

The bread becoines Thy Body,

The wine becomes Thy Blood, O how can man be worthy

Of such celestial food ?

I pray Thee, grant me pardon ;

I pray Thee, hear my prayer, That Thy sweet peace and blessing

I may for ever share. Amen.
