Tuesday in Whitsun-Week.

Hereby know ye the Spirit of God. Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God.

From the Lesson. [1 Jn. 4:2]


Komm Heil'ger Geist, Herre Gott

Luther. 1524.

trans. by Catherine Winkworth, 1855

Come, Holy Spirit, God and Lord,

Be all Thy graces now outpoured

On the believer's mind and soul,

And touch our hearts with living coal.

Thy Light this day shone forth so clear,

All tongues and nations gathered near,

To learn that faith, for which we bring

Glad praise to Thee, and loudly sing,

Hallelujah, Hallelujah!

Thou Strong Defence, Thou Holy Light,

Teach us to know our God aright,

And call Him Father from the heart:

The Word of life and truth impart,

That we may love not doctrines strange,

Nor e'er to other teachers range,

But Jesus for our Master own

And put our trust in Him alone.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah!

Thou Sacred Ardour, Comfort Sweet,

Help us to wait with ready feet

And willing heart at Thy command,

Nor trial fright us from Thy band.

Lord, make us ready with Thy powers,

Strengthen the flesh in weaker hours,

That as good warriors we may force

Through life and death to Thee our course.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
