God Holy Ghost ! thy influence shed,

In all our hearts abroad:
Thou fill'st the sonl, thro' Jesus' blood,
With faith, and hope, and love.

Point out the place, where grace

Direct us to the bleeding wounds
By sin and grief opprest;

Thou to the dead dost life impart,
And to the weary, rest.

And serve and love him fervently; 4 Let no false comfort lift us up This be our gain, else all things loss.

To confidence that's vain :
Nor let their faith and courage droop,
