    Verse 1
    Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove,
    With all Thy quickening powers;
    Kindle a flame of sacred love
    In these cold hearts of ours.

    Verse 2
    In vain we tune our formal songs,
    In vain we strive to rise;
    Hosannas languish on our tongues
    And our devotion dies.

    Verse 3
    And shall we then for ever live
    At this poor dying rate?
    Our love so faint, so cold to Thee,
    And Thine to us so great!

    Verse 4
    Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove,
    With all Thy quickening powers;
    Come, shed abroad the Saviour's love,
    And that shall kindle ours.
