Timothy Rees: Holy Spirit, ever dwelling

Holy Spirit, ever dwelling
in the holiest realms of light;
Holy Spirit, ever brooding
o’er a world of gloom and night;
Holy Spirit, every raising
Sons of earth to thrones on high;
living life-imparting Spirit,
thee we praise and magnify.

Holy Spirit, ever living
as the church’s very life;
Holy Spirit, every striving
through her in a ceaseless strife;
Holy Spirit every forming
in the church the mind of Christ;
thee we praise with endless worship
for thy fruit and gifts unpriced.

Holy Spirit, every working
through the church’s ministry;
quickening, strengthening and absolving,
setting captive sinners free;
Holy Spirit, every binding
age to age and soul to soul
in a fellowship unending;
thee we worship and extol.
