Send Thy Spirit

OHT Incipit:  

Send Thy Spirit, I beseech Thee,
Gracious Lord, send while I pray;
Send the Comforter to teach me,
Guide me, help me in Thy way.
Sinful, wretched, I have wandered
Far from Thee in darkest night;
Precious time and talents squandered,
Lead, O lead me into light.

Thou hast heard me; light is breaking,
Light I never saw before;
Now my soul, with joy awaking,
Gropes in fearful gloom no more.
O the bliss! my soul, declare it,
Say what God has done for thee;
Tell it out, let others share it
Christ's salvation, full and free.

Multitudes, whom Thou art seeking,
Seek for Thee this very hour;
Savior, let them hear Thee speaking,
Come with soul-converting power.
Lo, He comes-the ransomed own Him,
This the song I hear them sing:
"In my heart I will enthrone Him,
Christ, my Savior, Lord, and King.
