Methodist Hymnal (1876)

1 HAIL, Holy Ghost, Jehovah, Third
In order of the Three;
Sprung from the Father and the Word
From all eternity!

2 Thy Godhead brooding o'er the abyss
Of formless waters lay;
Spoke into order all that is,
And darkness into day.

3 In deepest hell, or heaven's height,
Thy presence who can fly?
Known is the Father to thy sight,
The abyss of Deity.

4 Thy power through Jesu's life displayed,
Quite from the virgin's womb,
Dying, his soul an offering made,
And raised him from the tomb.

5 God's image, which our sins destroy,
Thy grace restores below;
And truth, and holiness, and joy,
From thee their fountain flow.

6 Hail, Holy Ghost, Jehovah, Third
In order of the Three;
Spring from the Father and the Word
From all eternity!
