Adoration of Father, Son and Holy Spirit: #7

Are we truly present at worship? Can we focus away from the world in adoration of Father, Son and Holy Spirit?

A devotion I read talked about our worship of God needing to be done from our spirits, our true selves. This week’s hymn asks God’s Spirit to give our souls divine truth, to awaken our spirits, to clear our sights, and to reign in our consciences.


John 4:23-24 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.

Corinthians 2:13  And we are setting these truths forth in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, combining and interpreting spiritual truths with spiritual language

Song:  “Holy Spirit, Truth Divine” – Words by Samuel Longfellow (1864) and Music adapted from Orlando Gibbons (1623)

  1. Holy Spirit, Truth divine,
    Dawn upon this soul of mine;
    Word of God and inward light
    Wake my spirit, clear my sight.
  2. Holy Spirit, Love divine,
    Glow within this heart of mine;
    Kindle every high desire;
    Perish self in Thy pure fire.
  3. Holy Spirit, Pow’r divine,
    Fill and nerve this will of mine;
    Grant that I may strongly live,
    Bravely bear, and nobly strive.
  4. Holy Spirit, Right divine,
    King within my conscience reign;
    Be my Lord, and I shall be
    Firmly bound, forever free.
  5. Holy Spirit, Peace divine,
    Still this restless heart of mine;
    Speak to calm this tossing sea,
    Stayed in Thy tranquility.
  6. Holy Spirit, Joy divine,
    Gladden Thou this heart of mine;
    In the desert ways I sing,
    “Spring, O Well, forever spring.”

About Bonita B. Evans

Since I was young I have felt God's presence in my life. I have been singing Christian music since I was a small child. Reading and studying the Bible have become more and more important in my life. In 2008, songs started coming into my head when reading, driving and also sleeping, so I decided to write them down and share them. For Christmas 2008, I recorded a ten song CD for my family and friends. For Advent 2009, I shared the first version of "A Flame in My Heart" with my church, family and friends. In 2011, I created and shared in this blog "40 Songs for 40 Days" for Lent. For Advent 2011 and 2012 I posted revised versions of "A Flame in My Heart". For Lent 2013 I reposted "40 Songs for 40 Days". I am not sure why this has all happened but I consider it to be a gift from God.
