O Holy Spirit, Lord of Grace

Full Text

1 O Holy Spirit, Lord of grace,
eternal fount oflove,
inflame, we pray, our inmost hearts
with fire from heaven above.

2 As thou in bond of love dost join
the Father and the Son,

and knit our hearts in one.

3 All glory to the Father be,
all glory to the Son,
all glory, Holy Ghost, to thee,
while endless ages run.
