     17 GIMEL. Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep thy word.

     18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

     19 I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.

     20 My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times.

     21 Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from thy commandments.

     22 Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy testimonies.

     23 Princes also did sit and speak against me: but thy servant did meditate in thy statutes.

     24 Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counsellors.(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.
