A Poor Brother's Hymnal
Friday, May 18, 2007
  Come, Thou Holy Spirit Bright
Come, thou Holy Spirit Bright;
come with Thy celestial light;
pour on us thy love divine.

Come, Protector of the poor;
Come, thou source of blessing sure;
Come within our hearts to shine.

Thou of comforters the best,
Thou, the sou's most welcome guest,
Of our peace thou art the sign.

In our labor, be our aid;
In our Summer, cooling shade.
Every bitter tear refine.

Brighter than the noonday sun,
fill our lives which Christ has won;
fill our hearts and make them Thine.

Where Thou art not, we have nought.
All our word and deed and though
twisted from Thy true design.

Bend the stubborn heart and will.
Melt the frozen, warm the chill.
Rule us by Thy judgment's line.

Cleanse us with Thy healing power.
What is barren bring to flower.
To Thy love our sins consign.

To Thy people who adore
and confess Thee evermore,
Thy blest sevenfold gift assign.

Frant us thy salvation, Lord,
boundless mercy our reward,
joys which earth and heaven entwine.

All my favorite hymns. Most of them are from before the Reformation.
