ENTHRONED on high, almighty Lord,
   The Holy Ghost send down:
Fulfil in us Thy faithful word,
    And all Thy mercies crown.
2  Though on our heads no tongues of fire
    Their wondrous signs impart,
Grant, Saviour, what we more desire,
    Thy Spirit in our heart.
3  Spirit of life, and light, and love,
    Thy heavenly influence give:
Enliven souls—born from above—
    That we in Christ may live.
4  To our benighted minds reveal
    The Saviour’s glorious grace;
And bring us where no clouds conceal
    The brightness of His face.
5  His love in us now shed abroad,
    An ever-springing well;
Till God in us, and we in God,
    In love eternal dwell.
Thomas Haweis, 1732-1820
