One StF+ user enquired about the use of a “small” (lower case) ‘s’ when writing about “your spirit” in v.3.

Andrew Pratt responds:

“When this hymn was being edited, along with others of mine, I made the decision that when a member of the Trinity was being addressed directly it made sense to capitalise the name, hence ‘Spirit’. Where the reference was to an attribute of a person of the God-head, then small-case was used, hence ‘spirit [of God]’.”

    I really like the words & sentiments, but wonder why the small “s” for Spirit in v3?
