O God the Holy Ghost

As a bright flame,
and like unto the wind,
Come from the heights of heaven,
O God the Holy Ghost!
Touch Thou my tongue with fire,
guide Thou my feeble pen,
Make my heart strong,
then when I need Thee most.
Help me to write of Thee,
teach me to speak of Thee,
Let me lead souls to Thee,
O God the Holy Ghost.

~Susan L. Emery, 1903
