Granted is the Saviour's Prayer
Granted is the Saviour's prayer,
Sent the gracious Comforter;
Promise of our parting Lord,
Jesus now to heaven restored:
Christ who, now gone up on high,
Captive leads captivity;
While his foes from him receive
Grace that God with man may live.
God, the everlasting God,
Makes with mortals his abode;
Whom the heav'ns cannot contain,
He vouchsafes to dwell in man.
Never will he thence depart,
Inmate of an humble heart;
Carrying on his work within,
Striving till he casts out sin.
Come, divine and peaceful Guest,
Enter our devoted breast;
Holy Ghost, our hearts inspire,
Kindle there the Gospel-fire.
Now descend, and shake the earth;
Wake us into second birth;
Life divine in us renew,
Thou the gift and giver too!
