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.
