Holy Spirit, Ever Living

Christ_the_King_Catholic_Church_(Ann_Arbor,_Michigan)_-_interior,_Holy_Spirit_window

Holy Spirit, ever living
as the Church’s very life;
Holy Spirit, ever striving
through her in a ceaseless strife;
Holy spirit, ever forming
in the Church the mind of Christ;
thee we praise with endless worship
for thy fruits and gifts unpriced.

Holy Spirit, ever working
through the Church’s ministry;
quickening, strengthening and absolving,
setting captive sinners free;
Holy Spirit, ever binding
age to age and soul to soul,
in a fellowship unending
thee we worship and extol.

Words: Timothy Rees (1874-1939)
Tune: ABBOT’S LEIGH, Cyril Vincent Taylor (1907-1991)
