I ORD, I hear of showers of blessing Pass me not, O mighty Spirit !
Thou canst niake the blind to see; Showers the thirsty land refreshing;
Witnesser of Jesus' merit,
(me. Let some drops descend on me--Even me. Speak the word of power to me-Even Pass me not, O gracious Father,
Have I long in sin been sleeping, Sinful though my heart may be ;
Long been slighting, grieving Thee? Thou might'st leave me, but the rather Has the world my heart been keeping ?
Let Thy mercy light on me--Even me. O forgive and rescue me-Even me. Pass me not, O gracious Saviour !
Love of GOD, so pure and changeless ; Let me love and cling to Thee;
Blood of CHRIST, so rich and free ; I am longing for Thy favour;
[me. Grace of God, so strong and boundless, Whilst Thou’rt calling, oh call me-Even Magnify it all in me-Even me.
Pass me not; but, pardon bringing,
Bind my heart, O LORD), to Thee ;
[Alternative Tunes Nos. 124, 177.] HOLY GHOST, Eternal Light, I But we may claim and make our own Send forth Thy piercing ray,
The Sevenfold Gifts of Grace, Without Thee all is hopeless night, The lamps that burn before Thy Throne But with Thee glorious day.
To light our earthly race.
We dare not hope for tongues of fire,
We may not here behold
And feathers bright as gold.
As one by one the souls press in
Thy glorious love to share,
A sevenfold gift of prayer.
All glory to the Father be,
All glory to the Son,
While endless ages run. Amen.
[Alternative Tune No. 125.] CREATOR Spirit, Holy Guest,
O kindle Love in every heart, U Take up within our souls Thy rest, I
To every mind Thy Light impart, Come with Thy grace and heavenly aid, With Wisdom pure and Virtue high, And fill the hearts which Thou hast made. And Ghostly Strength our souls supply.
