“I will put my spirit within you.” Ezek. 36. 27

A. M. Toplady (from the German)   8.7.

1
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.

2
Come, thou best of all donations,
God can give, or we implore!
Having thy sweet consolations,
We on earth can wish no more.

3
Author of the new creation,
Bid us now thy influence prove;
Make our souls thy habitation;
Shed abroad the Saviour’s love.
