     14 And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them. 15 And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him. 16 And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them? 17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit; 18 And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not. 19 He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me. 20 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. 21 And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child. 22 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us. 23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. 24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. 25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him. 26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead. 27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose. 28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out? 29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.(KJV)

1. O Holy Spirit, enter in 
And in our hearts Thy work begin, 
Thy temple deign to make us; 
Sun of the soul, Thou Light Divine, 
Around and in us brightly shine, 
To joy and gladness wake us. 
That we, In Thee 
Truly living, To Thee giving 
Prayer unceasing, 
May in love be still increasing. 

2. Give to thy Word impressive power 
That in our hearts, from this good hour, 
As fire it may be glowing; 
That we confess the Father, Son, 
And Thee, the Spirit, Three in One, 
Thy glory ever showing. 
Stay Thou, Sway now 
Our souls ever That they never 
May forsake Thee, 
But by faith their Refuge make Thee. 

3. Thou fountain whence all wisdom flows 
Which God on pious hearts bestows, 
Grant us Thy consolation 
That in our pure faith’s unity 
We faithful witnesses may be 
Of grace that brings salvation. 
Hear us, Cheer us 
By Thy teaching; Let our preaching 
And our labor 
Praise Thee, Lord, and serve our neighbor. 

4. Left to ourselves, we shall but stray; 
Oh, lead us on the narrow way, 
With wisest counsel guide us 
And give us steadfastness that we 
May ever faithful prove to Thee 
Whatever woes betide us. 
Come, Friend, And mend 
Hearts now broken, Give a token 
Thou art near us, 
Whom we trust to light and cheer us. 

5. Thy heavenly strength sustain our heart 
That we may act the valiant part 
With Thee as our Reliance, 
Be Thou our Refuge and our Shield 
That we may never quit the field, 
But bid all foes defiance. 
Descend, Defend 
From all errors and earth’s terrors; 
Thy salvation 
Be our constant consolation. 

6. O mighty Rock, O Source of Life, 
Let Thy dear Word, mid doubt and strife, 
Be strong within us burning 
That we be faithful unto death, 
In Thy pure love and holy faith, 
From Thee true wisdom learning. 
Thy grace And peace 
On us shower; By Thy power 
Christ confessing, 
Let us win our Savior’s blessing. 

7. O gentle Dew, from heaven now fall 
With power upon the hearts of all, 
Thy tender love instilling, 
That heart to heart more closely bound, 
In kindly deeds be fruitful found, 
The law of love fulfilling; 
Dwell thus In us. 
Envy banish; Strife will vanish 
Where Thou livest. 
Peace and love and joy Thou givest. 

8. Grant that our days, while life shall last, 
In purest holiness be passed, 
Be Thou our Strength and Tower. 
From sinful lust and vanity 
And from dead works set Thou us free 
In every evil hour. 
Keep Thou Pure now 
From offenses Heart and senses; 
Blessed Spirit! 
Let us heavenly life inherit.
