68R Holy Spirit, Love Divine

Original Title: "Holy Spirit, Light Divine," Andrew Reed (1788-1862) & Samuel Longfellow (1819-1892), LYNE, 7.7.7.7., Magadalen Chapel Hymns (c. 1760); New Title: "Holy Spirit, Love Divine," rev. REH (2005), same hymn tune. Samuel Longfellow was a Unitarian poet, and editor of Hymns of the Spirit One; Andrew Reed was an English Congregationalist. The hymn does not appear in Singing the Living Tradition, but in another form it does appear in The New Century Hymnal under the name "Holy Spirit, Truth Divine," to the tune MERCY, without the revisions by Reed. The hymn resonantes most deeply with John 4:24, "God is spirit, and those who worship God must worship in spirit and truth."

LYNE (7.7.7.7.)

1. Ho-ly Spir-it, Love Di-vine,
glow with-in this heart of mine;
Kind-le eve-ry high de-sire;
cleanse my soul in your pure fire.

2. Ho-ly Spir-it, Light Di-vine,
shine up-on this heart of mine;
As the night soon fades a-way,
turn my thoughts toward your new day.


3. Ho-ly Spir-it, Peace Di-vine,
still this rest-less heart of mine;
Speak to calm the toss-ing sea,
stayed in your tran-quil-i-ty.


4. Ho-ly Spir-it, Power Di-vine,
lift this guil-ty heart of mine;
May the mark be missed no more,
though each soul has failed be-fore.

5. Ho-ly Spir-it, Joy Di-vine,
cheer this sad-dened heart of mine;
Bid my troub-led thoughts be still,
with your peace my spir-it fill.

6. Ho-ly Spir-it, All Di-vine,
dwell with-in this heart of mine;
Cast down eve-ry i-dol high,
reign su-preme, a-bide e'er nigh. A-men
