1 Or this:

COME, Holy Ghost, eternal God,
Proceeding from above,
Both from the Father and the Son

The God of peace and love;
Visit our minus, into our hearts

Tby heavenly grace inspire; That truth and godliness toe may

Pursue with full desire. Thou art the very Comforter

lix grief and all distress; The heavenly gift of God most High;

fVo tongue can it express;
The fountain and the living spring

Of joy celestial j
Thefire so brigkt,tht love so sweet,

The Unction Spiritual.
Thou in thy gifts art manifold,

By them Christ's Church doth stand: In faithful hearts thou xorit'st thy law,

The finger of God's hand. According to thy promise, Lord,

Thou givest speech with grace$
That, through thy help, God's praises may

Resound in every place.
O Holy Ghost, into our minds

Send down thy heavenly light;
Kindle our hearts with fervent zealt

To serve God day and night. Our weakness strengthen and confirm,

For, Lord, thou know'st us frail;
That neither devil,world, nor flesh\

Against us may prevail.
Put hack our enemies far from us,

And help us to obtain
Peace in our hearts with God and man,

The best, the truest gain;
And grant that thou heing, O Lord,

Our leader and our guide,
We may escape the snares of sin,

And never from thee slide.
Such measures of thy powerful grace

G rant, Lord, to us, we pray;
That thou may'st he our Comforter

At the last dreadful day.
Of strife and of dissent ion

Dissolve, O Lord, the bands,
And knit the knots of peace and love

Throughout all Christian lands. Grant us the grace that we may know

The Father of all might,
That we of his beloved Son,

May gain the blissful sight;
And that we may with perfect faith

Ever acknowledge thee,
The Spirit of Father, and of Son,

One God in Persons Three.
To God the Father laud and praise,

And to his blessed Son,
And to the Holy Spirit of Grace,

Co-equal Three in One.
And pray we, that our only Lord

Would please his Spirit to send
On nil that shall profess his name,'

From hence to the world's end. Amen.
