Hear us, thou that broodest

Hear us, thou that broodedst
O'er the wat'ry deep,
Waking all creation
From its primal sleep;
Holy Spirit, breathing
Breath of life divine,
Breathe into our spirits,
Blending them with thine.
Refrain
Light and Life immortal!
Hear us as we raise
Hearts, as well as voices,
Mingling prayer and praise.


When the sun ariseth
In a cloudless sky,
May we feel thy presence,
Holy Spirit, nigh;
Shed thy radiance o'er us,
Keep it cloudless still,
Through the day before us,
Perfecting thy will.
Refrain
Light and Life immortal!
Hear us as we raise
Hearts, as well as voices,
Mingling prayer and praise.


When the fight is fiercest
In the noontide heat,
Bear us, Holy Spirit,
To our Savior's feet;
There to find a refuge
Till our work is done,
There to fight the battle
Till the battle's won.
Refrain
Light and Life immortal!
Hear us as we raise
Hearts, as well as voices,
Mingling prayer and praise.


If the day be falling
Sadly as it goes,
Slowly in its sadness
Sinking to its close,
May thy love in mercy,
Kindling, ere it die,
Cast a ray of glory
O'er our evening sky.
Refrain
Light and Life immortal!
Hear us as we raise
Hearts, as well as voices,
Mingling prayer and praise.


Morning, noon, and evening,
Whensoe'er it be,
Grant us, gracious Spirit,
Quickening life in thee:
Life that gives us, living,
Life of heavenly love,
Life that brings us, dying,
Life from heaven above.
Refrain
Light and Life immortal!
Hear us as we raise
Hearts, as well as voices,
Mingling prayer and praise.
