7s & 6s. Isaiah xi. 1 - 3. 1 BRANCH of Jesse's stem, arise, And in our nature grow, Turn our earth to paradise By flourishing below: Bless us with the Spirit of grace, Immeasurably shed on thee; Give to all the faithful race The promised Deity.
2 Let the Spirit of our Head On all the members rest; From thyself to us proceed, And dwell in every breast; Teach to judge and act aright, Inspire with wisdom from above, Holy faith, and heavenly might, And reverential love.
3 Lord, of thee we fain would learn Thy heavenly Father's will; Give us quickness to discern, And boldness to fulfil; All his mind to us explain, And all his name on us impress; Then our souls in thee attain The perfect righteousness.
