65 THOU art gone up on high,

To mansions in the skies;
And round Thy throne unceasingly

The songs of praise arise.
2 But we are lingering here,

With sin and care oppressed ;
Lord, send Thy promised Comforter,

And lead us to our rest.
3 Thou art gone up on high ;

But Thou shalt come again,
With all the armies of the sky

Attendant in thy train.
4 Oh! by Thy saving power,

So make us live and die,
That we may stand in that dread hour

At Thy right hand on high !

WHITSUNDAY.

view :

66 O THOU, that once in fiery tongues Cam'st down in

open
Come visit ev'ry heart that longs

To entertain Thee too :
2 And though not like the mighty wind,

Nor with a rushing noise :
May we Thy calmer comforts find,

And hear Thy still small voice :
3 We pray to be renew'd within

And reconcil'd to God:
To have our conscience purg'd from sin

With the Redeemer's blood.

67 WHEN the blest Spirit of our God,

Came down his flock to find ;
A voice from heav'n was heard abroad,

A rushing mighty wind.
2 Nor doth the outward ear alone,

At that high warning start ;
Conscience gives back th' appalling tone,

'Tis echo'd in the heart.
3 It fills the church of God, it fills
The sinful world around

;
Only in stubborn hearts and wills,

No place for it is found.
4 Come, Lord, come wisdom, love, and power;

Open our ears to hear,
Let us not miss th' accepted hour,

Save, Lord, by love, or fear.

68 SPIRIT of mercy, truth, and love,

O shed Thy influence from above;
And still from age to age convey

The wonders of this sacred day.
2 In every clime, by every tongue,

Be God's amazing glory sung ;
Let all the listening earth be taught

The wonders by the Saviour wrought.
3 Blest Comforter and heavenly Guide,

Still with the Church of Christ abide ;
Still let our souls Thy blessings prove,
Spirit of mercy, truth, and love.

69 COME, Holy Spirit, come ;

Let Thy bright beams arise :
Dispel the darkness from our minds,
And
open

all our eyes.
2 Revive our drooping faith;

Our doubts and fears remove ;
And kindle in our breasts the flames

Of never-dying love.

3

Convince us of our sin,

Then lead to Jesu's blood;
And to our wondering view reveal

The secret love of God.

4

'Tis Thine to cleanse the heart,

To sanctify the soul,
To pour fresh light on every part,

And new create the whole.

5

Dwell, therefore, in our hearts;

Our minds from bondage free;
Then shall we know, and praise, and love,

The Father, Son, and Thee.

70 HOLY GHOST! inspire our praises,

Shed abroad a Saviour's love ;
While we chant the name of Jesus,

Deign on ev'ry heart to move.
Source of sweetest consolation !

Breathe Thy peace on all below;
Bless, O bless this congregation,

Bid our hearts with influence glow.

2 Come with heav'nly inspiration,

Jesus in our souls reveal ;
Manifest his great salvation,

As Thine own our spirits seal.
Light Divine, on darkness shining,

Deign the light of truth to give ;
Every grace and joy combining,

May we to Thy glory live.

3 Hail, ye spirits bright and glorious,

High exalted round the throne !
Now with you we join in chorus,
And
your

Lord we call our own.
God to us his Son hath given,

Saints, your noblest anthems raise !
All in earth and all in heaven,

Shout the great Jehovah's praise !

71 COME, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire,

And lighten with celestial fire!
Thou the Anointing Spirit art,
Who dost Thy sevenfold gifts impart:
Thy blessed unction from above
Is comfort, life, and fire of love.

2 Teach us to know the Father, Son,

And Thee of both, to be but One ;
That, through the ages all along,

,
This

72 SPIRIT Divine! attend our prayer,

And make this house Thy home;
Descend with all Thy gracious power, -

O come, Great Spirit, come!
2 Come as the Light,-to us reveal

Our emptiness and woe;
And lead us in those paths of life,

Where all the righteous go. 3 Come as the Fire,-and purge our hearts

Like sacrificial flame;
Let our whole souls an offering be

To our Redeemer's name.
4 Come as the Dove,-and spread Thy wings,

The wings of peaceful love ;
And let the Church on earth become

Blest as the Church above.

73 GRACIOUS SPIRIT, Love divine,

Let Thy light around us shine !
All our guilty fears remove,

Fill us with Thy peace and love !
2 Pardon to the contrite give,

Bid the wounded sinner live;
Lead us to the Lamb of God,

Wash us in his precious blood !
3 Earnest Thou of heavenly rest,

Comfort every troubled breast;
Life, and joy, and peace impart,
Sanctifying every heart.!
