WHO but thou, Almighty spirit;

Can the heathen world reclaim,

Men may preach, but till thou favor,

Heathens will be still the same:

Mighty spirit!

Witness to the Saviour's name.

Thou hast promised by the Prophets

Glorious light in latter days:

Come, and bless bewildered nations,

Change our prayers and tears to praise;

Promised spirit!

Round the world diffuse thy rays.

All our hopes, and prayers, and labor,

Must be vain without thine aid;

But thou wilt not disappoint us-

All is true that thou hast said:

Faithful spirit!

O'er the world thy influence shed
