A Model Hymn of Invocation

Jesper Swedberg (1653-1735).

O Lord, give heed unto our plea,

O Spirit, grant Thy graces,

That we who put our trust in Thee

May rightly sing Thy praises.

Thy Word, O Christ, unto us give,

That grace and power we may receive

To follow Thee, our Master.

Touch Thou the shepherd’s lips, O Lord,

That in this blessed hour

He may proclaim Thy sacred Word

With unction and with power;

What Thou wouldst have Thy servant say,

Put Thou into His heart, we pray,

With grace and strength to say it.

Let heart and ear be opened wide

Unto Thy Word and pleading;

Our minds, O Holy Spirit, guide

By Thine own light and leading.

The law of Christ we would fulfil,

And walk according to His will,

His Word our rule of living.
