Verse 1
Holy Spirit come down
On this Thy day of rest
Without Thee our worship is vain,
And empty is our prayers.

Verse 2
Our singing will be cold
Our preaching will be vain
Unprofitable our gathering,
Except if Thou be there.

Verse 3
Great Messenger from Heaven
Who knows Thy beginning
Talk Thou to us by Thy ownself
Through this Thy servant here

Verse 4
Teach us how to seek Thee
For all of our requests
With groanings that can't be uttered
Take to Jesus our prayers.

Verse 5
Through Thy gracious leading
We hope for Thy mercy
Our service will be blessed indeed
If Thou be with us here.
