145. O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God

1 O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God,
In every need Thou bringest aid,
Thou camest forth from God’s great throne,
From God, the Father and the Son;
O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God.

2 O Spirit of life, O Spirit of God,
Make us to love Thy sacred Word;
The holy flame of love impart,
That charity may warm each heart;
O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God.

3 O Spirit of life, O Spirit of God,
Increase our faith in our dear Lord;
Unless Thy grace the power should give,
None can believe in Christ and live;
O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God.

4 O Spirit of life, O Spirit of God,
Enlighten us by Thy blest Word;
Teach us to know the Father’s love,
And His dear Son, Who reigns above:
O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God.

5 O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God,
By Whom our souls to heaven are led,
Make us to fight so valiantly
That we may reign eternally;
O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God.

6 O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God,
Forsake us not in death or need.
We'll sing Thy praise and honor Thee
With grateful hearts eternally;
O Spirit of Life, O Spirit of God.

Amen.
