Hymn: “Holy Spirit, Truth Divine”
Holy Spirit, Truth divine,
Dawn upon this soul of mine;
Word of God and inward light,
Wake my spirit, clear my sight.
Holy Spirit, Love divine,
Fill and nerve this will of mine;
By thee may I strongly live,
Bravely bear and nobly strive.
Holy Spirit, Right divine,
King within my conscience reign;
Be my Lord, and I shall be
Firmly bound, forever free. Amen
Closing Prayer: The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen. – 2 Corinthians 13:14
