Hymn 261 - "Blest Spirit, we would sing to Thee,"


Blest Spirit, we would sing to Thee,

Thou source of life and liberty;

Springs of refreshing we have known,

Sent here from heav'n; Thy grace we own,

O Gift unspeakable!


Thy precious service sheds abroad

Within our hearts the love of God;

Among the many led by Thee

We find our part in liberty,

Marked as the sons of God.


By Thee, through Christ, we now draw near,

With Him in glory to appear;

The double portion we enjoy;

By Thee we would our lips employ,

And "Abba, Father!" cry.
