O God the Holy Spirit

June 26, 2008

This is a hymn that we sung last week in church, check it out and let me know what you think.

 

O God the Holy Spirit, eternal One of Three, my Comforter and Teacher, be merciful to me.  You hovered over chaos the land and sea to part so manifest Your power to calm my restless heart.

O God the Holy Spirit, direct me to the cross where I can see the suffering my waywardness has cost.  In Jesus’ death please show me the power of my sin and by His life convince me this battle He will win.

O God the Holy Spirit, put Jesus on display: remind me how my Savior took all my guilt away.  My sins were all forgiven and satisfaction made: atonement was completed, my captive soul was saved.

O God the Holy Spirit, come deepen and impart these saving, loving lessons upon my desperate heart that I might loathe my evil and flee from Satan’s snares then run to my Redeemer and cast on Him my cares.

 

From David L. Ward.  Based on the prayer, “The Spirit’s Work” from The Valley of Vision.
