Holy Spirit, From On High

Text:  William H. Bathurst  1831
Music:  Carl M. von Weber  1826
Tune:  Seymour  77.77
OHT Incipit:  32436 53233 33471

Holy Spirit, from on high,
Bend oíer us with pitying eye;
Now refresh the drooping heart;
Bid the power of sin depart.

Light up ev'ry dark recess
Of our heartís ungodliness;
Show us ev'ry devious way
Where our steps have gone astray.

Teach us, with repentant grief,
Humbly to implore relief;
Then the Saviorís blood reveal,
And our broken spirits heal.

May we daily grow in grace,
And pursue the heav'nly race,
Trained in wisdom, led by love,
Till we reach our rest above.
