+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

To Thee, God, Holy Ghost, we pray,

Who lead’st us in the gospel way,

Those precious gifts on us bestow,

Which from our Saviour’s merits flow.

+++++

Thou Heavenly Teacher, Thee we praise

For Thy instruction, power and grace,

To love the Father, Who doth own

Us as His children in the Son.

+++++

Most gracious Comforter, we pray,

O, lead us further every day;

Thy unction to us all impart,

Preserve and sanctify each heart.

+++++

Till we in heaven shall take our seat,

Instruct us often to repeat,

“Abba, our Father;” and to be

With Christ in union constantly.
