God the Holy Ghost
Manifest Thy love for ever ;
Fence us in on every side ; In distress be our reliever,
Guard and teach, support and guide! Let Thy kind effectual grace Turn our feet from evil ways ;
Show Thyself our new Creator, - And conform us to Thy Nature !
Be our Friend on each occasion,
God ! omnipotent to save ! When we die, be our salvation,
When we're buried, be our grave ! And, when from the grave we rise, Take us up above the skies,
Seat us with Thy saints in glory,
There for ever to adore Thee !
Variation by A ngustns M. Toplady. From John Christian Jacobi. 1725.
Holy Spirit, in my breast Grant that lively Faith may rest, And subdue each rebel thought To believe what Thou hast taught.
When around my sinking soul Gathering waves of sorrow roll, Spirit blest, the tempest still, And with Hope my bosom fill.
