Spirit of peace! celestial dove!

How excellent thy praise!

No richer gift than Christian love

Thy gracious power displays.

+++++

Sweet as the dew on herb and flower,

That silently distills,

At evening’s soft and balmy hour,

On Zion’s fruitful hills:–

+++++

So, with mild and influence from above,

Shall promised grace descend,

Till universal peace and love

O’er all the earth extend.
