Spirit of mercy, truth, and love,
O shed thine influence from above,
and still from age to age convey
the wonders of this sacred day.
In every clime, by every tongue,
be God’s surpassing glory sung;
let all the listening earth be taught
the acts our great Redeemer wrought.
Unfailing comfort, heavenly guide,
still o’er thy holy church preside;
still let us all thy blessings prove,
Spirit of mercy, truth, and love.
