“I will put my spirit within you.” Ezek. 36. 27
A. M. Toplady (from the German) 8.7.
Holy Ghost, dispel our sadness,
Pierce the clouds of nature’s night;
Come, thou Source of joy and gladness,
Breathe thy life, and spread thy light.
Come, thou best of all donations,
God can give, or we implore!
Having thy sweet consolations,
We on earth can wish no more.
Author of the new creation,
Bid us now thy influence prove;
Make our souls thy habitation;
Shed abroad the Saviour’s love.
