    Verse 1
    Lord God the Holy Ghost,
    In this accepted hour,
    As on the day of Pentecost,
    Descend in all Thy power:
    We meet with one accord
    In our appointed place,
    And wait the promise of our Lord,
    The Spirit of all grace.

    Verse 2
    Like mighty rushing wind
    Upon the waves beneath,
    Move with one impulse every mind,
    One soul, one feeling, breathe:
    The young, the old, inspire
    With wisdom from above;
    And give us hearts and tongues of fire
    To pray, and praise, and love.

    Verse 3
    Spirit of light, explore
    And chase our gloom away,
    With lustre shinning more and more
    Unto the perfect day;
    Spirit of truth, be Thou
    In life and death our Guide;
    O Spirit of adoption, now
    May we be sanctified.
