    Verse 1
    Come, Holy Ghost, our hearts inspire;
    Let us Thine influence prove:
    Source of the old prophetic fire,
    Fountain of life and love.

    Verse 2
    Come, Holy Ghost for moved by Thee
    The prophets wrote and spoke.
    Unlock the truth, Thyself the key;
    Unseal the Sacred Book.

    Verse 3
    Expand Thy wings, celestial Dove,
    Brood o'er our nature's night;
    On our disordered spirits move,
    And let there now be light.

    Verse 4
    God, through Himself, we then shall know
    If Thou within us shine,
    And sound with all Thy saints below,
    The depths of love divine.
