Hymn: TLH 236:
Creator Spirit, By Whose Aid

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. Creator Spirit, by whose aid 
The world’s foundations first were laid, 
Come, visit every humble mind; 
Come, pour Thy joys on humankind; 
From sin and sorrow set us free 
And make Thy temples worthy Thee. 

2. O Source of uncreated light, 
The Father’s promised Paraclete, 
Thrice holy Fount, thrice holy Fire, 
Our hearts with heavenly love inspire; 
Come and Thy sacred unction bring 
To sanctify us while we sing. 

3. Plenteous of grace, descend from high 
Rich in Thy sevenfold energy; 
Make us eternal truths receive 
And practice all that we believe; 
Give us Thyself that we may see 
The Father and the Son by Thee. 

4. Immortal honor, endless fame, 
Attend the almighty Father’s name; 
The Savior Son be glorified, 
Who for lost man’s redemption died; 
And equal adoration be, 
Eternal Paraclete, to Thee.
