Holy Spirit, Ever Living (Tune: ABBOT'S LEIGH)

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;
Quick’ning, strength’ning, 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.

Text: Timothy Rees, 1942
Tune: ABBOT'S LEIGH 87.87D, by Cyril V. Taylor
