501. O Holy Spirit, Lord of grace

1 O Holy Spirit, Lord of grace,
eternal fount of love,
inflame, we pray, our inmost hearts
with fire from heav'n above.

2 As thou dost join with holiest bonds
the Father and the Son,
so fill thy saints with mutual love
and link their hearts in one.

3 To God the Father, God the Son
and God the Holy Ghost,
be praise eternal from the earth,
and from the angel-host.
