FABER'S HYMNS,
HOLY GHOST, COME DOWN UPON THY
CHILDREN.
Holy Ghost ! come down upon Thy children,
Give us grace, and make us Thine; Thy tender fires within us kindle,
Blessed Spirit! Dove Divine !
For all within us good and holy
Is from Thee, Thy precious gift; In all our joys, in all our sorrows, Wistful hearts to Thee we lift.
Holy Ghost ! come down upon Thy children,
Give us grace, and make us Thine; Thy tender fires within us kindle, Blessed Spirit! Dove Divine!
For Thou to us art more than father,
More than sister, in Thy love,
So gentle, patient, and forbearing,
Holy Spirit! heavenly Dove !
Holy Ghost ! come down upon Thy children,
Give us grace, and make us Thine; Thy tender fires within us kindle, Blessed Spirit! Dove Divine !
Oh we have grieved Thee, gracious Spirit!
Wayward, wanton, cold are we : And still our sins, new every morning,
Never yet have wearied Thee.
