1.  Come, Holy Spirit, heav’nly Dove,

With all thy quick’ning pow’rs;

Kindle a flame of sacred love

In these cold hearts of ours.

2.  In vain we tune our formal songs,

In vain strive to rise;

Hosannas languish on our tongues,

And our devotion dies.

3.  Dear Lord, and shall we ever live

At this poor dying rate?

Our love so faint, so cold to thee,

And thine to us so great!

4.  Come, Holy Spirit, heav’nly Dove,

With all thy quick’ning pow’rs;

Come, shed abroad a Savior’s love,

And that shall kindle ours.
