1.  Come, thou Holy Spirit bright;

come with thy celestial light;

come, thou source of blessings sure;

come within our hearts to shine.

2.  Thou, of comforters the best,

thou, the sou’s most welcome guest,

of our peace thou art the sign.

In our labor, be our aid;

in our summer, cooling shade.

Every bitter tear refine.

3.  Brighter than the noonday sun,

fill our lives which Christ has won;

fill our hearts and make them thine.

Where thou art not, we have nought:

all our word and deed and thought

twisted from they true design.

4.  Bend the stubborn heart and will;

melt the frozen, warm the chill;

rule us by the judgment’s line.

Cleanse us with thy healing power;

what is barren bring to flower;

to thy love our sins consign.

5.  To thy people who adore

and confess thee evermore,

thy blest seven-fold gift assign.

Grant us thy salvation, Lord,

boundless mercy our reward,

joys which earth and heaven entwine.
