James Montgomery

The Descent of the Spirit.--Acts, ii. 1-4.

Lord God, the Holy Ghost,

In this accepted hour,

As on the day of Pentecost,

Descend in all Thy power;

We meet with one accord

In our appointed place,

And wait the promise of our Lord,

The Spirit of all grace.

Like mighty rushing wind

Upon the waves beneath,

Move with one impulse every mind,

One soul, one feeling breathe:

The young, the old inspire

With wisdom from above;

And give us hearts and tongues of fire

To pray, and praise, and love.

Spirit of light, explore,

And chase our gloom away,

With lustre shining more and more

Unto the perfect day:

Spirit of truth, be Thou

In life and death our guide;

O Spirit of adoption, now

May we be sanctified.
