369. The cross is on our brow


St. Andrew:

Joseph Barnby, 1866

William C. Dix, 1869

The cross is on our brow,

Redemption's awful sign:

Come thou, O Holy Spirit, now,

To seal the work divine.


Thy sevenfold gifts impart,

O Comforter most sweet:

Inflame with zeal each lukewarm heart,

And guide the trembling feet.

With Pentecostal force

Thy presence let us feel:

With strength, who art thyself its source,

Inspire us as we kneel.

Confirm in us today

The work that thou hast wrought;

Illume the souls with love's pure ray

Which Jesus' blood hath bought.

No earth-forged arms we bear:

Strength, weapons, all are thine:

Accept each vow and hear each prayer,

Blest Trinity divine.
