O Holy Ghost! thy heavenly dew - Hymn for Whit-Sunday
(Johann Caspar Lavater/Frances Elizabeth Cox/
Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Hymn for Whit-Sunday.

"Create in me a clean heart, O God;
and renew a right spirit within me." (Psalm 51,10)

1. O Holy Ghost! thy heavenly dew
the hearts of sinners can renew;
  thou dost within our breasts abide,
  and still to holy actions guide. PDF - Midi

2. Through thee the soul is fain to sing
when sorrow's clouds are deepening;
  with Jesus Christ thou mak'st us one,
  Earnest of heaven, from God's High Throne.

3. Best Gift of God, and man's true Friend,
now to my inmost soul descend;
  the mind of Jesus Christ impart,
  and consecrate to thee my heart.

4. Teach me to do my Father's Will,
to lie, beneath his guidance, still;
  lighten my mind, my heart incline
  to make henceforth his Pleasure mine.

5. From spot and blemish make me pure,
my future bliss in heaven secure;
  when lost in darkness, give me light,
  and cheer me though death's dreary night.

Frances Elizabeth Cox, Hymns from the German, 1864, 67+69.
Translated from the German O Geist des Herrn, nur deine Kraft - Pfingstlied
of Johann Caspar Lavater.
