And worship thee with trembling hope,

And penitential tears. 5 Yet we may love thee too, O Lord! 199 Almighty as thou art, For thou hast stooped to ask of us

The love of each poor heart. 6 O then these worse than worthless hearts

In pity deign to take,
And make them love thee, for thyself

And for thy glory's sake.

For the gift of Christ our Lord:
For the glorious fulness great,

And didst suffer on the cross. 3 Holy Spirit! Dove Divine!

And apply the Saviour's blood.

130 7s & 6s. GREAT Author of creation,

When all thy work was done,
Loud shouts of exultation

Re-echo'd round thy throne;
The morning stars were ringing,

Throughout the vault above;
The sons of God were singing

Thy wisdom, power, and love. 2 Blest Author of salvation,

Had sunk in desolation,

Had fallen in death's embrace;
O then thy Love hung bleeding,

Upon the cross to die:
That Love still interceding,

Is prevalent on high.
3 Thou new-creating Spirit,

Thou Searcher of the heart;
Who, through the Saviour's merit,

Dost quick’ning grace impart:
Thou precious gift from heaven,
Thou messenger

And make our joys increase. 131

When time was yet unknown,
