The Holy Spirit Sighs For Us


Date : 2021-08-24
Speaker : David Schaller
Romans 8:26
(CSB) In the same way the Spirit also helps us in our weakness, because we do not know what to pray for as we should, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with inexpressible groanings.

Hymn: TLH 226, st. 5-7 :
Come, Oh Come, Thou Quickening Spirit — Organ Audio

5. Prompt us, Lord, to come before Him
With a childlike heart to pray;
Sigh in us, O Holy Spirit,
When we know not what to say.
Then our prayer is not in vain,
And our faith new strength shall gain.

6. If our soul can find no comfort
And despondency grows strong
That the heart cries out in anguish:
“O my God, how long, how long?”
Comfort then the aching breast,
Grant us courage, patience, rest.

7. Holy Spirit, strong and mighty.
Thou who makest all things new,
Make Thy work within us perfect
And the evil Foe subdue.
Grant us weapons for the strife
And with victory crown our life.
