O Spirit of the living God
1 O Spirit of the living God,
in all the fullness of your grace,
wherever human feet have trod,
descend on our apostate race.
2 Give tongues of fire and hearts of love
to preach the reconciling word;
Give power and unction from above
whenever the joyful sound is heard.
3 Be darkness, at thy coming, light,
confusion order, in thy path;
Souls without strength inspire with might:
bid mercy triumph over wrath!
4 O Spirit of the Lord All the round earth her God to meet;
breathe thou aboard, like morning air,
till hearts of stone begin to beat.
5 Baptize the nations; far and near
the triumphs of the cross record;
The Name of Jesus glorify, Till every kindred call Him Lord.
