1
SPIRIT of grace, O Thou whose hidden might
Sustains us day by day the whole way through,
We bless Thee for Thy service, and unite
In rend'ring now the homage that is due.
2
Spirit of truth, 'tis Thou who lead'st us on
Into the fulness of God's purpose here;
Thou takest heavn'ly glories of the Son,
And bringest every precious feature near.
3
Filled with the favour Thou dost make us prove,
Spirit of life, with rev'rent hearts may we
More skilfully in service learn to move,
And for the power rely alone on Thee.
4
Clothes us with that humility, we pray,
That honours Thee and shows what Thou canst do;
Grant that the lustre of th'eternal day -
The day of God - shine in our hearts anew.

P.G. Blanc, fr. French
