A Poem for the Holy Spirit

A Plea for the Holy Spirit

by Robert Davis Smart

Love Witness of my Father’s Rights,

Counseling Messenger divine;

Come in power from Ascension Heights,

Tabernacle through weakness and thorny pine.


Send forth the eternal word,

The word of sovereign grace;

That all may know their bleeding Lord

Has risen to sit in that highest place.


My tongue and voice are yours to preach

My soul, it deeply groans and painfully aches;

Make it weep for every one I long to reach,

That revival glory may come with holy quakes.


Then when all are holy hushed,

When Christ’s blood has been applied;

Over the door posts of shame once blushed,

Promise us Your presence, Christ be magnified.
