1. Enthroned on high, almighty Lord!
The Holy Ghost send down;
Fulfill in us Thy faithful word,
And all Thy mercies crown.
2. Though on our heads no tongues of fire
Their wondrous powers impart,
Grant, Savior, what we more desire,
Thy Spirit in our heart.
3. Spirit of life, and light, and love,
Thy heav’nly influence give;
Quicken our souls, our guilt remove,
That we in Christ may live.
4. To our benighted minds reveal
The glories of His grace.
And bring us where no clouds conceal
The brightness of His face.

Enthroned on high, Almighty Lord. T. Haweis. [Whitsuntide.] First published in his Carmina Christo, &c, 1792 (2nd ed., 1802.), No. 15 in 5 stanzas of 4 lines, and entitled, "Day of Pentecost." It was included in several of the older collections of Great Britain, but its modern use is mainly confined to America, where it is given in a large number of collections. In some of these, as in H. A. Boardman's Presbyterian Selection of Hymns, 1860, it 13 attributed to "Humphries." This error is as early as J. Conder's Congregational Hymn Book, 1836, if not earlier. Original text in Lyra Britannica 1867, p. 286.
