Almighty Comforter and friend - Prayer to the Spirit
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Prayer to the Spirit.
1. Almighty Comforter and friend,
eternal Spirit, now descend,
fill us from thy heavenly store!
Thou art the Church's holy guest,
earnest of her eternal rest,
let us grieve thee never more! (PDF - Midi)
2. Great Promise of the Father, come,
the Church's fading lamps relume;
come, rekindle joy and love!
Wisdom, and truth, and love are thine,
life, light, and holiness divine;
shed thy gifts down from above!
3. Witness of him who died and rose,
who, as the conqueror of our foes,
took his seat upon the throne;
great gift of Jesus glorified,
revealer of the Crucified,
unto us reveal the Son!
Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope III, 1878, 49.
