The Wanderer

As I walked through the wilderness of this world …

“O, Holy Spirit, come!”

Augustine S.M.

O, Holy Spirit, come!
We need your gracious light
To open up our blinded eyes,
And drive forth shades of night.

We search the precious Word,
But stumble as we go.
Come, set our feet upon the Rock
That we the way might know.

Our understanding help;
Our meditation bless;
We, by ourselves, cannot advance –
Our weakness we confess.

Reveal the truth of God,
And give us hearts to love
The promise and direction that
Have come from heaven above.

So grant increasing light,
And open up the Word.
Give ears to hear and eyes to see
The glories of the Lord.
