680. O Spirit of Life

1 O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God,
In every need Thou bringest aid,
Proceeding forth from God’s great throne,
From God, the Father and the Son;
O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God.

2 O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God,
Increase our faith in our dear Lord;
Unless your grace the power should give,
None can believe in Christ and live;
O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God.

3 O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God,
Make us to love your sacred Word;
The holy flame of love impart,
That charity may warm each heart;
O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God.

4 O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God,
Enlighten us by that same Word;
Teach us to know the God's radiant love,
Lead us to Christ who reigns above:
O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God.
