1Spirit of truth, we call
On Thee this house to bless,
Give wisdom, strength and grace to all
Who here Thy Name confess.
2Spirit of mercy, bring
Thy balm the sick to heal;
And make the weary ones to sing,
Who shall Thy presence feel.
3Spirit of peace, descend,
Thyself the heavenly Dove;
Let care for souls and bodies blend
In ministries of love.
4Spirit of Christ, abide
In every heart alway;
And crown, O Jesus crucified,
The work begun today. Amen.
