1.  Come, Holy Spirit, Truth divine,

And witness bear that Christ is mine,

And that I trust no other name

To save my soul from sin and shame.

2.  Come, Holy Spirit, Light divine,

And let Thy light within me shine,

That from the way of God I may

Not even for a moment stray.

3.  Come, Holy Spirit, from above,

Imbue us with the Father’s love,

And lend to us Thy voice of grace

To comfort every tribe and race.
