"Come, O Creator Spirit"

As I was reading I came across this and wanted to pass it on, maybe you will feel the way as I after reading it.

This is a very old hymn, which address the Holy Spirit and ask Him to bring blessing into our heart, filling us with joy, love and praise, and giving us protection from the enemy and peace in our lives.

Come, O Creator Spirit blest,

And in our hearts take up thy rest;

Spirit of grace,with heav'nly aid

Come to the souls whom thou hast made.

Thou art the Comforter, we cry,

Sent to the earth from God Most High,

Fountain of life and fire and love,

And our anointing from above.

Bringing from heav'n our sev'n-fold dow'r,

Sign of our God's right hand of pow'r,

O blessed Spirit, promised long,

Thy coming wakes the heart to song.

Make our dull minds with rapture glow,

Let human hearts with love o'erflow;

And, when our feeble flesh would fail,

May thine immortal strength prevail.

Far from our souls and for repel,

Grant us in peace henceforth to dwell;

Ill shall not come, nor harm betide,

If only thou wilt be our guide.

Show us the Father, Holy One,

Help us to know th' eternal Son;

Spirit divine, for evermore

Thee will we trust and thee adore.

- Author unknown written around Tenth Century

"So then, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God." Romans 8:12-14
