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.
