1Thou Who camest from above,
Bringing light, and shedding love,
Gracious Spirit! Love Divine,
Let Thy Light around us shine.
2Thou Who once didst change our state,
Making us regenerate,
Help us evermore to be
Faithful subjects unto Thee.
3Where Thou art not, none can do
What is holy, just, and true;
They whose hearts Thy wisdom leads,
Think good thoughts and do good deeds.
4We have often grieved Thee sore;
Never let us grieve Thee more:
Thou the feeble canst protect;
Thou the wandering canst direct.
5We are dark,– be Thou our light;
We are blind,– be Thou our sight:
Be our comfort in distress;
Guide us through the wilderness.
6Praise the Blessèd Three in One;
Praise the Father and the Son;
To the Holy Ghost arise
Praise from all beneath the skies. Amen.
John15:26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
