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 may be our endless song:
Praise to Thy eternal merit,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit !

SPIRIT Divine ! attend our prayer,
N 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.


"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.!

4 Guardian Spirit, lest we stray,

Keep us in the heavenly way!
Bring us to Thy courts above,
Realms of light and endless love!

TRINITY SUNDAY. 74. W E give immortal praise

V To God the Father's love,
For all our comforts here,

And better hopes above ;
He sent his own eternal Son

To die for sins that man had done.
2 To God the Son belongs
• Immortal glory too,
Who bought us with his blood

From everlasting woe;
And now He lives, and now He reigns,

And sees the fruit of all his pains.
3 To God the Spirit's name

Immortal worship give,
Whose new-creating power

Makes the dead sinner live;
His work completes the great design,

And fills the soul with joy divine. 4 Almighty God, to Thee

Be endless honour done,-
The sacred Persons Three,

The power and Godhead one :
Where reason fails with all her powers,
There faith prevails, and love adores.

75 FATHER of heaven, whose love profound

A ransom for our souls hath found,
Before Thy throne we sinners bend;

To us Thy pardoning love extend. 2 Almighty Son, Incarnate Word,

Our Prophet, Priest, Redeemer, Lord,
Before Thy throne we sinners bend;

To us Thy saving grace extend. 3 Eternal Spirit, by whose breath

The soul is raised from sin and death,
Before Thy throne we sinners bend;

To us Thy quickening power extend.
4 Jehovah, Father, Spirit, Son,
Mysterious Godhead! Three in One!
Before Thy throne we sinners bend ;
Grace, pardon, life to us extend.

OLY, holy, holy, Lord,

God of hosts, by all ador'd,
Who dost ev'ry gift confer,
Father, Saviour, Comforter,
Earth and heav'n are full of Thee,

Of Thy glorious majesty!
2 Jesus, hail, Thou great I AM!

Worthy thou, the dying Lamb.
Angel-harps resound thy praise,
Saints adore in humbler lays ;
Every creature bows the knee,
Worshipping Thy majesty.

3 All as one adore the Lord,

Father, Spirit, and the Word.
Hail, Thou glorious Three in One !
By the Spirit, through the Son,
Glory to the Father be,
Glory to Thy majesty!

GREAT the joy, the union sweet,
U When the saints together meet;
When, their theme of praise the same,
They exalt Jehovah's name.

2 Sing we then eternal love,

Such as did the Father move:
He beheld the world undone,
Lov'd the world, and gave his Son.

3 Sing the Son's unbounded love;

How he left the realms above,
Took our nature and our place,
Liv'd and died to save our race.

4 Sing we, too, the Spirit's love :

With our stubborn hearts he strove,
Chas'd the mists of sin away,
Turn'd our night to glorious day.

5 Great the joy, the union sweet,

When the saints in glory meet;
Where the theme is still the same,
Where they sing Jehovah's name.
