Spirit of Holiness, Descend ~ Hymn

Spirit of holiness, descend:
Thy people wait for Thee;
Thine ear in kind compassion lend;
Let us Thy mercy see.

Thy light that on our souls hath shone,
Lead us in hope to Thee;
Let us not feel its rays alone,
Alone Thy people be.

O bring our dearest friends to God;
Remember those we love;
Fit them on earth for Thine abode,
Fit them for joys above.

Spirit of holiness, ’tis Thine
To hear our feeble prayer;
Come, for we wait Thy power divine,
Let us Thy mercy share.

words by Samuel F. Smith, 1841

  1. Good morning Ellen B.,

    I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend so far and that the best is yet to come :). I love how you post Hymns Sunday mornings as they’re all so beautiful and because I wasn’t raised in the church so very few of them are familiar to me, but I love to read the lyrics. Thank you!
    Have a blessed Sunday!
    Cori
