371. Holy Spirit, Lord of love

Six 7's

Holy Spirit:

George F. LeJeune, 1894

William D. Maclagan, 1873

Holy Spirit, Lord of love,

Thou who camest from above,

Gifts of blessing to bestow

On thy waiting Church below;

Once again in love draw near

To thy children gathered here.

From their bright baptismal day,

Through their childhood's onward way,

Thou hast been their constant Guide,

Watching ever by their side;

May they now till life shall end,

Choose and know thee as their Friend.

Give them light thy truth to see,

Give them life to live for thee,

Daily power to conquer sin,

Patient faith the crown to win;

Shield them from temptation's breath,

Keep them faithful unto death.

When the holy vow is made,

When the hands are on them laid,

Come, in this most solemn hour,

With thy sevenfold gifts of power,

Come, thou blessèd Spirit, come,

Make each heart thy happy home.

Amen.
