The Presbyterian Hymnal: Hymns, Psalms, and Spiritual Songs


Holy Spirit, Truth Divine

1.  Holy Spirit, truth divine,
    Dawn upon this soul of mine;
    Word of God, and inward light,
    Wake my spirit, clear my sight.

2.  Holy Spirit, love divine,
    Glow within this heart of mine;
    Kindle every high desire;
    Perish self in Thy pure fire.

3.  Holy Spirit, power divine,
    Fill and nerve this will of mine;
    By Thee may I strongly live,
    Bravely bear, and nobly strive.

4.  Holy Spirit, right divine,
    Make my conscience wholly Thine;
    Be my law, and I shall be 
    Firmly bound, forever free.
