Lyrics

Come, Thou soul-transforming Spirit,
Bless the sower and the seed;
Let each heart Thy grace inherit;
Raise the weak, the hungry feed;
From the Gospel, now supply Thy people’s need.

O may all enjoy the blessing
Which Thy Word’s designed to give;
Let us all, Thy love possessing,
Joyfully the truth receive,
And forever to Thy praise and glory live.
