'O Holy Spirit, Grant us Grace' Hymn

1. O Holy Spirit, grant us grace
That we our Lord and Saviour
In faith and fervent love embrace
And truly serve Him ever.
So that when death is drawing nigh
We to His open wounds may fly
And find in them salvation.

2. f Help us that we Your saving Word
In faithful hearts may treasure.
Let e’er that Bread of Life afford
New grace in richest measure.
Yea, let us die to every sin
mp For heaven create us new within
That fruits of faith may flourish.


3. f And when our earthly race is run
Death’s bitter hour impending.
Then may Your work in us begun
Continue till life’s ending.
Until we gladly may commend,
Our souls into our Saviour’s hand
To rest in peace eternal. Amen

[Batholomäus Ringwaldt, tr. Oluf H Smenby
