65 THOU art gone up on high,
To mansions in the skies;
The songs of praise arise.
With sin and care oppressed ;
And lead us to our rest.
But Thou shalt come again,
Attendant in thy train.
So make us live and die,
At Thy right hand on high !
66 O THOU, that once in fiery tongues Cam'st down in
To entertain Thee too :
Nor with a rushing noise :
And hear Thy still small voice :
And reconcil'd to God:
With the Redeemer's blood.
67 WHEN the blest Spirit of our God,
Came down his flock to find ;
A rushing mighty wind.
At that high warning start ;
'Tis echo'd in the heart.
No place for it is found.
Open our ears to hear,
Save, Lord, by love, or fear.
68 SPIRIT of mercy, truth, and love,
O shed Thy influence from above;
The wonders of this sacred day.
Be God's amazing glory sung ;
The wonders by the Saviour wrought.
Still with the Church of Christ abide ;
69 COME, Holy Spirit, come ;
Let Thy bright beams arise :
all our eyes.
Our doubts and fears remove ;
Of never-dying love.
Convince us of our sin,
Then lead to Jesu's blood;
The secret love of God.
'Tis Thine to cleanse the heart,
To sanctify the soul,
And new create the whole.
Dwell, therefore, in our hearts;
Our minds from bondage free;
The Father, Son, and Thee.
70 HOLY GHOST! inspire our praises,
Shed abroad a Saviour's love ;
Deign on ev'ry heart to move.
Breathe Thy peace on all below;
Bid our hearts with influence glow.
2 Come with heav'nly inspiration,
Jesus in our souls reveal ;
As Thine own our spirits seal.
Deign the light of truth to give ;
May we to Thy glory live.
3 Hail, ye spirits bright and glorious,
High exalted round the throne !
Lord we call our own.
Saints, your noblest anthems raise !
Shout the great Jehovah's praise !
71 COME, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire,
And lighten with celestial fire!
2 Teach us to know the Father, Son,
And Thee of both, to be but One ;
song : Praise to Thy eternal merit, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit !
72 SPIRIT Divine! attend our prayer,
And make this house Thy home;
O come, Great Spirit, come!
Our emptiness and woe;
Where all the righteous go. 3 Come as the Fire,-and purge our hearts
Like sacrificial flame;
To our Redeemer's name.
The wings of peaceful love ;
Blest as the Church above.
73 GRACIOUS SPIRIT, Love divine,
Let Thy light around us shine !
Fill us with Thy peace and love !
Bid the wounded sinner live;
Wash us in his precious blood !
Comfort every troubled breast;
