HYMN CCLVII.

8.8.8.8

James Montgomery

The Spirit accompanying the Word of God.

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.

261

Be darkness, at Thy coming, light,

Confusion, order in Thy path;

Souls without strength inspire with might,

Bid mercy triumph over wrath.

O Spirit of the Lord! prepare

All the round earth her God to meet;

Breathe Thou abroad like morning air,

Till hearts of stone begin to beat.

Baptize the nations; far and nigh,

The triumphs of the Cross record;

The name of Jesus glorify,

Till every kindred call him Lord.

God from eternity hath will'd,

All flesh shall His salvation see;

So be the Father's love fulfill'd,

The Saviour's sufferings crown'd through Thee.
