1
SPIRIT of God, to Thee we bow in priase,
For Thou art God, the ever holy One:
One with the Father and the Son, Thy ways
Are merged with Theirs in all that has been done.
2
Thou didst Thyself, in feelings all sublime,
To hover o'er the scene of waste come down,
Before God made the vast expanse in time,
To work out all His great designs in man.
3
And when at length the Son on earth did stand,
Thou didst descend in love to mark Him out;
Thenceforth to be the power of His hand,
E'en to the off'ring of Himself to God.
4
And now in lowlier stoop and tireless love,
Thou from th' ascended Christ to us hast come,
To open to our view the things above,
And guide and lead a heav'nly people home.
