8.8.6. D
Tune: “Lehin aye buburu yi”

1.  SPIRIT of wisdom, turn our eyes 

     From earth and earthly vanities 

     To heav’nly truth and love 

     Spirit of understanding true

     Our souls with heav’nly light endure 

     To seek the things above.

2.  Spirit of counsel, be our Guide 

     Teach us, by earthly struggles tried 

     Our heavenly crown town

     Spirit of fortitude, Thy pow’r 

     Be with us in temptation’s hour 

     To keep us pure from sin.

3.  Spirit of knowledge, lead our feet

     In Thine own paths, so safe and sweet 

     By angel footsteps trod

     Where Thou our Guardian true shalt be

     Spirit of gentle piety

     To keep us close to God.

4.  Through all our life be ever near 

     Spirit of God’s most holy fear

     In our heart‘s inmost shrine

     Our souls with awful reverence fill 

     To worship His most holy will 

     All‐righteous and divine.

5.  So lead us, Lord, through peace ur strife, 

     Onward to everlasting Iife

     To win our high reward

     So may we fight our lifelong fight 

     Strong in Thine own unearthly might 

     And reign with Christ our Lord.  Amen
