247. Blest Spirit, one with God above

1 Blest Spirit, one with God above,
Thou Source of life and holy love,
O cheer us with Thy sacred beams,
Refresh us with Thy plenteous streams.

2 O may our lips confess Thy Name,
Our holy lives Thy praise proclaim:
With love divine our hearts inspire,
And fill us with Thy holy fire.

3 O holy Father, holy Son,
And Holy Spirit, Three in One,
Thy grace devoutly we implore,
Thy Name be praised for evermore.
