475. O Spirit of the living God



Samuel Webbe, 1782

James Montgomery, 1823

O Spirit of the living God,

In all thy plenitude of grace,

Where'er the foot of man hath trod,

Descend on our apostate race.

Give tongues of fire and hearts of love,

To preach the reconciling word;

Give power and unction from above

Whene'er the joyful sound is heard.

Be darkness, at thy coming, light;

Confusion, order, in thy path;

Souls without strength inspire with might,

Bid mercy triumph over wrath.

Convert the nations! far and nigh

The triumphs of the cross record;

The Name of Jesus glorify

Till every people call him Lord.
