The Book of Praise.
Holy Spirit, from my mind Thought and wish and will unkind, Deed and word unkind remove, And my bosom fill with love.
Faith, and Hope, and Charity, Comforter, descend from Thee ; Thou the Anointing Spirit art, These Thy gifts to us impart,
Till our faith be lost in sight, Hope be swallowed in delight, And love return to dwell with Thee, In the threefold Deity !
Bishop Richard Mant. 1828.
Full of weakness and of sin,
We look to Thee for life: Lord, Thy gracious work begin,
And calm the inward strife !
Though our hearts are prone to stray,
Be Thou a constant Friend : Though we know not how to pray,
Thy saving mercy send !
Let Thy Spirit, gracious Lord,
Our souls with love inspire, Strength and confidence afford,
And breathe celestial fire !
Teach us first to feel our need,
Then all that need supply ; When we hunger, deign to leed>
And hear us when we cry!
