Catechism Song #25 – The Holy Spirit


# Question Answer
58 Can you repent and believe in Christ by your own power? No; I can do nothing good without the help of God’s Holy Spirit.
59 How can you get the help of the Holy Spirit? God has told us that we must pray to him for the Holy Spirit.


Wholly unable am I
No matter how dogged my try
To turn aside
From sinful pride
That darkens the light of my eye.

Key to my soul’s liberty
Is God’s Holy Spirit in me;
To Him I’ll pray
Without delay
For strength to awaken and see.

Good we can’t do on our own;
Our hearts are as barren as stone;
The Spirit’s breath
Must heal the death
That petrifies marrow and bone.
