Holy Spirit, All Divine

Affirming The Classics: Holy Spirit, Truth Divine
Samuel Longfellow

Holy Spirit, Truth Divine
Is within this Soul of mine
Words of God and purest Light
Are my Spirit and my sight

Holy Spirit, Love Divine
Glows within this heart of mine
Shining out for all to see
God’s higher love flows through me

Holy Spirit, Power Divine
Fills and is a strength of mine
I Am powered by pure Light
All I need to do things right

Holy Spirit, Light Divine
Leads and is the Way of mine
God is present everywhere
In His Light my life I share

Holy Spirit, Peace Divine
Always is the core of mine
I Am serene and tranquil
Steadfast in God’s peace, so still

Holy Spirit, Joy Divine
Constant is the aim of mine
Beauty surrounds, life is fun
Sings my Soul, we are all One

Trina Graves – 12th March 2019


About This Poem

I don’t actually know this hymn, but after working on a couple of my favourites for my series of poems ‘Affirming The Classics,‘ I read through some hymns and this one stood out to me as one I would like to tweak to make it more positive and as an affirmation.

Original Hymn…

Holy Spirit, truth Divine
Dawn upon this soul of mine
Word of God, and inward light
Wake my spirit, clear my sight

Holy Spirit, love Divine
Glow within this heart of mine
Kindle every high desire
Perish self in Thy pure fire

Holy Spirit, power Divine
Fill and nerve this will of mine
By Thee may I strongly live
Bravely bear, and nobly strive

Holy Spirit, right Divine
King with my conscience reign
Be my Lord, and I shall be
Firmly bound, for ever free

Holy Spirit, peace Divine
Still this restless heart of mine
Speak to calm this tossing sea
Stayed in Thy tranquillity

Holy Spirit, joy Divine
Gladden Thou this heart of mine
In the desert ways I’ll sing
Spring, O Well, for ever spring
(Samual Longfellow 1819 – 1892)
