2   We are sinful, cleanse us, Lord; We are faint, Thy strength afford; Lost, until by Thee restored,
Comforter divine!
3   Like the dew, Thy peace distil; Guide, subdue our wayward will, Things of Christ unfolding still,
Comforter divine!
4  In us " Abba, Father," cry, Earnest of our bliss on high, Seal of immortality,
Comforter divine!
5   Search for us the depths of God; Bear us up the starry road,
To the height of Thine abode, Comforter divine!
Ghokge Rawson, 1853
Faith, that mountains could remove, Tongues of earth or heaven above, Knowledge, all things, empty prove,
Without heavenly love. Love is kind, and suffers long; Love is meek, and thinks no wrong; Love than death itself more strong;
Therefore, give us love.
4   Faith will vanish into sight; Hope be emptied in delight;
Love in heaven will shine more bright; I Therefore, give us love.
5   Faith and hope and love we see, Joining hand in hand, agree; But the greatest of the three,
And the best, is love.
Bishop Christopher Wordsworth, 1862 I
