Moravian Hymn Book, #199

Holy Ghost, dispel our sadness,

Pierce the clouds of sinful night;

Come, thou source of sweetest gladness,

Breathe thy life, and spread thy light.

From that height which knows no measure

As a gracious shower descend,

Bringing down the richest treasure

Man can wish, or God can send!

[Come, Thou best of all donations...]

[Known to Thee are all recesses...]

Manifest thy love for ever;

Fence us in on every side;

In distress be our Reliever,

Guard and teach, support and guide.

[Be our Friend on each occasion...]

When we die, be our Salvation,

Raise us glorious from the grave;

Perfect thus thy new creation,

God! omnipotent to save.
