1.  Spirit divine, attend our prayers,

And make this house Thy home;

Descend with all Thy gracious powers;

O come, great Spirit, come!

2.  Come as the light: to us reveal

Our emptiness and woe;

And lead us in those paths of life

Where all the righteous go.

3.  Come as the fire: and purge our hearts

Like sacrificial flame;

Let our whole soul an offering be

To our Redeemer’s Name.

4.  Come as the dove:

and spread Thy wings,

The wings of peaceful love;

And let Thy Church on earth become

Blest as the Church above.

5.  Spirit divine, attend our prayers;

Make a lost world Thy home;

Descend with all Thy gracious powers;

O come, great Spirit, come!

1.  Holy Ghost, with light divine,

Shine upon this heart of mine;

Chase the shades of night away,

Turn the darkness into day.

2.  Holy Ghost, with power divine,

Cleanse this guilty heart of mine;

Long has sin, without control,

Held dominion o’er my soul.

3.  Holy Ghost, with joy divine,

Cheer this saddened heart of mine,

Bid my many woes depart,

Heal my wounded, bleeding heart.

4.  Holy Spirit, all divine,

Dwell within this heart of mine;

Cast down every idol throne,

Reign supreme–and reign above.
