January / February 2010

Holy Ghost, dispel our sadness;

Pierce the clouds of nature's night;
Come great source of joy and gladness,
breathe Your life and spread Your light.
From the height which knows no measure,
As a gracious shower descend, Bringing down the riches and treasure
man can wish, or God can send.

Author of the new creation,
Come with blessing and with power.
Make our hearts your habitation;
Our souls Your gracious shower.
Hear O hear our supplication,
Blessed Spirit, God of peace!
Rest upon this congregation,
With the fulness of Your grace.

Johann Cruger
Praxis Pietatis Melica,1648
