H2 The Book of Praise.
Spirit of Truth, be Thou In life and death our Guide ! 0 Spirit of adoption, now May we be sanctified !
James Moritgomery. 1819.
O du allersuste Freude. (Paul Gerhardt.) 1653.
Holy Ghost, dispel our sadness,
Pierce the clouds of sinful night; Come, Thou source of sweetest gladness,
Breathe Thy Life, and spread Thy Light ! Loving Spirit, God of Peace ! Great Distributor of grace !
Rest upon this congregation,
Hear, O hear our supplication !
From that height which knows no measure
As a gracious shower descend, Bringing down the richest treasure
Men can wish, or God can send ! O Thou Glory, shining down From the Father and the Son,
Grant us Thy illumination !
Rest upon this congregation !
Known to Thee are all recesses Of the earth and spreading skies ;
Every sand the shore possesses Thy Omniscient Mind descries.
Holy Fountain ! wash us clean
Both from error and from sin ! Make us fly what Thou refusest, And delight in what Thou choosest /
