    Verse 1
    Spirit divine, attend our prayers
    And make this house Thy home;
    Descend with all Thy gracious powers;
    O come, great Spirit, come!

    Verse 2
    Come as light: to us reveal
    Our emptiness and woe;
    And lead us in those paths of life
    Where all the righteous go.

    Verse 3
    Come as the fire, and purge our hearts
    Like sacrificial flame;
    Let our whole soul an offering be
    To our Redemeer's name.

    Verse 4
    Come as the dew, and sweetly bless
    This consecrated hour;
    May barrenness rejoice to own
    Thy fertilizing power.

    Verse 5
    Come as the dove, and spread Thy wings,
    The wings of peaceful love;
    And let Thy Church on earth become
    Blest as the Church above.

    Verse 6
    Spirit divine, attend our prayers;
    Make a lost world Thy home;
    Descend with all Thy gracious powers;
    O come, great Spirit, come.
