78

S.M.

1
To God the Spirit we
With Scripture do ascribe,
A Person in the sacred Three,
Distinct from all beside.

2
He wills, and speaks, and acts
For God to sinful men:
And writes within us gospel facts
With an immortal pen.

3
The things of God most deep
He searches and reveals:
And when for sin and guilt we weep,
Our souls with blood He heals.

4
To Him all things are known;
And here His Godhead shines,
Who brings the truth from Jesus’ throne,
In bright celestial lines.

5
Thus we of Him will tell,
And spread His praise abroad;
As God distinct, yet one as well
In Israel’s triune Lord.
