Title: The Holy Ghost Attends
Meter: 8 8 8 8
Our spirits will not long survive,
Nor have the nourishment to thrive
Unless the Holy Ghost attends,
And walks beside us as our friends.
We will succumb to Satan’s pow’r,
Unless we guard against the hour,
By taking of the Spirit’s sword,
Relying wholly on the Lord.
Deep sorrow would oft pierce us through,
For what we say and think and do,
Is not enough our load to bear,
Unless the Spirit comforts there.
Our wand’ring feet would go astray,
As we misplace the narrow way,
Unless we take the Spirit’s light,
To guide us through this latter night.
Our sure companion, dearest friend,
The Spirit bears us to the end,
For safe within his tender care,
We banish sin and flee despair.
