O HOLY SPIRIT, WE CONFESS                 

 Don Fortner

(Tune: The Doxology   LM)

 O Holy Spirit, we confess

The operations of Your grace.

Your power brings all mercy down

From God the Father and the Son.


Wakened to see our wretched state,

And made by grace our sins to hate,

Your inward workings made us know

Our danger and our refuge too.


You sprinkled us with Jesus’ blood,

Blood of our sin-atoning God,

Our terror and our guilt removed,

And showed us our Redeemer’s love.


By sov’reign grace and pow’r within,

You broke the chains of reigning sin.

We ask for grace each day anew.

Our horrid lusts, great God, subdue!


Blest is the man chosen by God.

Blest are the souls redeemed by blood.

How blest we are who have been called

By Your effectual, saving call!
