Holy Spirit, In Me

Affirming The Classics: Holy Spirit, Hear Us – W. H. Parker

Holy Spirit, in me
Infusing as I sing
Breathes into the music
United joy, I bring

Holy Spirit, joins me
Linking when I pray
Always there to teach me
Love, always the way

Holy Spirit, shines on
All I see, and read
Opening my Heart to
The compassion I need

Holy Spirit, lifts me
So that I now find
My way to be like Jesus
Gentle, pure and kind

Holy Spirit, guides me
With pure Divine Light
My true Path is clearer
Using my Source sight

Trina Graves – 16th October 2019


About This Poem

Another hymn to add to my Affirming The Classics collection where I take old inspirational poems and hymns and update the words to make them more positive and into affirmations. I didn’t know of this hymn, but came across it while looking for another one.

Here is the original hymn…

Holy Spirit, hear us
Help us while we sing
Breathe into the music
Of the praise we bring

Holy Spirit, prompt us
When we kneel to pray
Nearer come, and teach us
What we ought to say

Holy Spirit, shine thou
On the book we read
Gild its holy pages
With the light we need

Holy Spirit, give us
Each a lowly mind
Make us more like Jesus
Gentle, pure and kind

Holy Spirit, help us
Daily by thy might
What is wrong to conquer
And to choose the right

W. H. Parker 1845 – 1929
