Holy Spirit, Lord of love Lyrics
Holy Spirit, Lord Of Love,
Thou Who Camest From Above,
Gifts Of Blessing To Bestow
On Your Waiting Church Below,
Once Again In Love Draw Near
To Thy Servants Gathered Here.
From Their Bright Baptismal Day
Thou Hast Led Them On Their Way.
When The Sacred Vow Is Made,
When The Hands Are On Them Laid,
Come In This Most Solemn Hour
With Your Strengthening Gift Of Power.
Give Them Light Thy Truth To See:
Give Them Life To Live For Thee,
Daily Power To Conquer Sin,
Patient Faith, The Crown To Win.
