381. Holy Spirit, Ever Dwelling

1 Holy Spirit, ever dwelling
in the holiest realms of light;
Holy Spirit, ever brooding
o'er a world of gloom and night;
Holy Spirit, ever raising
those of earth to thrones on high;
living, life-imparting Spirit;
thee we praise and magnify.

2 Holy Spirit, ever breathing
on the church's the breath of life;
Holy Spirit, ever striving
through us in a ceaseless strife;
Holy Spirit, ever forming
in the church the mind of Christ:
thee we praise with endless worship,
for thy fruit and gifts un-priced.

3 Holy Spirit, ever working
through the church's ministry;
quick'ning, strength'ning, and absolving,
setting captive sinners free;
Holy Spirit, ever binding
age to age and soul to soul
in a fellowsip unending,
thee we worship and extol.
