1 O heavenly fount of life and love,
Adoring praise to Thee we pay;
Pour down, blest Spirit, from above
Fresh streams of grace this day.
2 Thou, o'er the Everlasting Son
Hovering with wings of living light,
Annointedst Israel's Champion
To fight the awful fight.
3 At Pentecost, Thou camest down,
As sound of rushing wind went by.
With tongues of heavenly fire to crown
That glorious company.
4 Thou on each new-born child of grace
Dost now in hidden power descend,
To strengthen for life's weary race,
To comfort and defend.
5 Thou in each meek and lowly heart,
With streams of living waters bright,
Sweet Fount of strength and gladness art,
Fresh Spring of life and light.
6 Thee, Spirit blest, All-Holy One,
In songs of triumph we adore,
For, with the Father and the Son,
Thou reignest evermore.
