" To this man will I look."



2 He came in tongues of living flame

To teach, convince, subdue;
All-powerful as the wind he came,

And ev'n as viewless too.
3 He came sweet influence to impart;

A gracious, willing guest,
While he can find one humble heart

Wherein to fix his rest.
4 Spirit of purity and grace!

Our weakness pitying see;
Oh, make our hearts thy dwelling place,

Purer and worthier thee. 88.

Is. 66 : 2.
HY home is with the humble, Lord!

The simplest are the best;
Thy lodging is in child-like hearts;

Thou makest there thy rest.
2 Dear Comforter ! eternal Love!

If thou wilt stay with me,
Of lowly thoughts and simple ways

I'll build a house for thee.
3 Who made this beating heart of mine

But thou, my heavenly Guest ?
Let no one have it, then, but thee,

And let it be thy rest! 89.

Psalm 133.
PIRIT of peace! celestial Dove!

How excellent thy praise !
No richer gift than Christian love

Thy gracious power displays.
2 Sweet as the dew on herb and flower

That silently distills,
At evening's soft and balmy hour,

On Zion's fruitful hills,-
3 So, with mild influence from above,

Shall promised grace descend,
Till universal peace and love

O'er all the earth extend !





John 16: 8-14.




YOME, Holy Spirit, come!

Let thy bright beams arise :
Dispel the sorrow from our minds,

The darkness from our eyes.
2 Convince us of our sin ;

Then lead to Jesus' blood,
And to our wondering view reveal

The secret love of God.
3 Revive our drooping faith,

Our doubts and fears remove,
And kindle in our breasts the flame

Of never-dying love.
4 'Tis thine to cleanse the heart,

To sanctify the soul,
To pour fresh life in every part,

And new-create the whole. 91.

Ezek, 11 : 19.
YOME, Holy Spirit, come,

With energy divine ;
And on this poor benighted soul

With beams of mercy shine.
2 Oh! melt this frozen heart;

This stubborn will subdue ;
Each evil passion overcome,

And form me all anew,

3 Mine will the profit be,

But thine shall be the praise;
And unto thee will I devote

The remnant of my days.


Acts 2.



In this accepted hour,
As on the day of Pentecost,

Descend in all thy power.
2 We meet with one accord

In our appointed place,
And wait the promise of our Lord,

The Spirit of all grace.
3 Like mighty rushing wind

Upon the waves beneath,
Move with one impulse every mind;

One soul, one feeling breathe.
4 The young, the old, inspire

With wisdom from above;
And give us hearts and tongues of fire,

To pray, and praise, and love.


Hab. 3: 2.


O ,

In Zion's gloomy hour;
And make her dying graces live

By thy restoring power.
2 Awake thy chosen few

To fervent, earnest prayer;
Again their sacred vows renew;

Thy blessed presence share.
3 Thy Spirit then will speak

Through lips of feeble clay,
And hearts of adamant will break,

And rebels will obey.
1 Lord, lend thy gracious ear:

Oh, listen to our cry!
Oh, come and bring salvation here !

Our hopes on thee rely.

He dwelleth with you.John 14 : 16, 17. MRS STEELE. URE the blest Comforter is nigh ;


Else would my hope forever die,

And every cheering ray depart.
2 Whene'er to call the Saviour mine,

With ardent wish my heart aspires,
Can it be less than power divine

That animates these strong desires ?
3 And when my cheerful hope can say,

I love my God, and taste his grace,
Lord, is it not thy blissful ray

Which brings this dawn of sacred peace ?
4 Let thy kind Spirit in my heart

Forever dwell, O God of love;
And light and heavenly peace impart,

Sweet earnest of the joys above. 95.

YOME, gracious Spirit, heavenly Dove,
Be thou our guardian, thou our guide,

O’er every thought and step preside.
2 The light of truth to us display,

And make us know and choose thy way;
Plant holy fear in every heart,
That we from God may ne'er depart.

John 16: 13.


3 Lead us to holiness--the road

Which we must take to dwell with God;
Lead us to Christ, the living way,

Nor let us from his pastures stray.
4 Lead us to God, our final rest,

To be with him for ever blest;
Lead us to heaven, its bliss to share-

Fullness of joy for ever there.
MERCY. 78.






2 Cor. 6: 16-18.
(OLY Ghost, with light divine,
Chase the shades of night away,

Turn my darkness into day.
2 Holy Ghost, with power divine,

Cleanse this guilty heart of mine ;
Long hath sin, without control,

Held dominion o'er my soul.
3 Holy Ghost, with joy divine,

Cheer this saddened heart of mine ;
Bid my many woes depart,

Heal my wounded, bleeding heart!
4 hioly Spirit, all divine !

Dwell within this heart of mine ;
Cast down every idol-throne;
Reign supreme, and reign alone!
