CV. The leadings of the spirit

1 Come, gracious spirit, heavenly dove,
With light and comfort from above;
Be thou our guardian, thou our guide;
O'er every thought and step preside.

2 Conduct us safe, conduct us far
From every sin and hurtful snare;
Lead to thy word that rules must give,
And teach us lessons how to live.

3 The light of truth to us display,
And make us know and choose thy way:
Plant holy fear in every heart,
That we from Thee may ne'er depart.

4 Lead us to holiness, the road
That we must take to dwell with God;
Lead us to Christ, the living way,
Nor let us from his pastures stray.

5 Lead us to God, our final rest,
To be with Him for ever bless'd;
Lead us to heav'n, the seat of bliss,
Where pleasure in perfection is.
