O Holy Spirit, Come, I Pray†††††††††††††

 

Don Fortner

 

(Tune: When I Can Read My Title Clear #497CM)

 

 

The preacherís words and doctrine sound

Can never save a soul.

The Spirit of the Lord must wound,

And make the wounded whole.

 

 

Godís free election, though itís truth,

Can never comfort me,

Until Iím told by Godís own mouth

That He has chosen me.

 

 

Sinners, I know, are justified

By sin-atoning blood;

But itís the blood by grace applied

That does this sinner good.

 

 

O Holy Spirit, come, I pray.

The Word of God apply

To chosen sinners yet astray

†††††††††††††††† And those by grace brought nigh!
