Christ My Song - 2134
Come, mighty Spirit, penetrate - Come, Mighty Spirit
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Come, Mighty Spirit.
2. As this clear air surrounds the earth,
thy grace around me roll;
as the fresh light pervades the air,
so pierce and fill my soul.
3. As from these clouds drops down in love
the precious summer rain,
so from thyself pour down the flood
that freshens all again.
4. As these fair flowers exhale their scent
in gladness at our feet,
so from thyself let fragrance breath,
more heavenly and more sweet.
5. Thus life within our lifeless hearts
shall make its glad abode,
and we shall shine in beauteous light,
filled with the light of God.
Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope II, 1878, 129.
