Hymn #401: O Spirit of the living God

Change to large font

1. O Spirit of the living God,
in all the fullness of thy grace,
whereever human foot hath trod,
descend on our rebellious race.

2. Give tongues of fire and hearts of love,
to preach the reconciling word;
give power and unction from above,
whene'er the joyful sound is heard.

3. Be darkness, at thy coming, light,
confusion order, in thy path;
souls without strength inspire with might;
bid mercy triumph over wrath.

4. O Spirit of the Lord, prepare
all the round earth its God to meet;
breathe thou abroad like morning air,
till hearts of stone begin to beat.

5. Baptize the nations: far and nigh
the triumphs of the cross record;
the name of Jesus glorify,
till every kindred call him Lord.
