Spirit of truth, of power, of love. Who mak'st the contrite heart Thy seat. The Father's promise from above, Blest Paraclete ! The gift by Christ sent down from heaven To cheer His flock, then tempest-tost, The abundant compensation given For Him they lost; Spirit! the Church's Comforter, With whom Thou deignest to abide, Light, strength, and teaching to confer. Our steps to guide : Spirit of Jesus ! one with Him, And with the eternal Father one ! Remove the veil that renders dim That glorious Sun. Oh manifest Thy power anew ! Reveal His love, His truths divine ! Till in Thy light those truths we view, In vain they shine. " Spirit of glory and of Christ ! " Now lead us at His feet to fall; Show us His ransom has sufficed; Make Him our all !
