Lyrics

O the blessèd Holy Spirit,
How He leads me in the way;
In the straight and narrow pathway,
In the light of perfect day.

Refrain

Shout His praises on the hilltops,
Tell it to the world around;
Glory! glory! hallelujah!
What a Savior I have found.

Jesus is my only refuge,
I will trust Him every day;
For I know He’ll never leave me;
He will guide me on the way.

Refrain

Let us praise Him, blessèd Jesus,
O His glory fills my soul;
Oh, His love! no tongue can tell it,
I am every whit made whole.

Refrain

O I know He’ll never leave me,
For I have Him in my heart;
Blessèd Jesus, precious Savior,
I will never from Thee part.

Refrain

And when all the loved ones gather
In that blessèd home above,
We will praise Him there forever,
Dwelling in the realms of love.
