Father, glorify Thy Son,
Answering His all powerful prayer;
Send the Intercessor down—
Send that other Comforter,
Whom believingly we claim,
Whom we ask in Jesus’ name.

Then by faith we know and feel
Him, the Spirit of truth and grace;
With us He vouchsafes to dwell,
With us while unseen He stays;
All our help and good, we own,
Freely flows from Him alone.

Wilt Thou not the promise seal,
Good and faithful as Thou art,
Send the Comforter to dwell
Every moment in our heart?
Yes, Thou wilt the grace bestow;
Christ hath said it shall be so.
