    Verse 1
    We come nigh, our heav'nly Father
    We Thy children weak and faint
    Fill us with Thy Holy Spirit
    Grant that we be all renewed;

    Come, Thou Holy Spirit do, come
    Speak through us in a new tongue!
    For Thy great gift we are pleading
    Thy great gift of Pentecost.

    Verse 2
    Lord, remember Thou Thy promise
    Pour Thy Spirit on all flesh,
    Give us of Thy peace, we pray Thee
    Peace, the world cannot afford,

    Come Thou Holy Spirit, do come
    Sin destroy Thou in our hearts
    For Thy great gift we are pleading
    Thy great gifts of Pentecost.

    Verse 3
    Heav'nly Dove, descend upon us
    Fill us with Thy power divine,
    That the nations all may worship
    To our Saviour yielded be,

    Let us hear of Thy great power through
    This dark continent of ours
    For Thy great gift we are pleading
    Thy great gift of Pentecost.
