The Holy Ghost Is Here

Text:  Charles Haddon Spurgeon  1866
Music:  Aaron Williams' Psalmody  1770
Tune:  St. Thomas
OHT Incipit:  51132 12345 43432

The Holy Ghost is here,
Where saints in prayer agree,
As Jesusí parting Gift is near
Each pleading company.

Not far away is He,
To be by prayer brought nigh,
But here in present majesty,
As in His courts on high.

He dwells within our soul,
An ever welcome Guest;
He reigns with absolute control,
As Monarch in the breast.

Our bodies are His shrine, And
He th'indwelling Lord;
All hail, Thou Comforter divine,
Be evermore adored!

Obedient to Thy will,
We wait to feel Thy power;
O Lord of life, our hopes fulfill,
And bless this hallowed hour.
