Spirit divine, attend our prayer,
And make this house Thy home;
Descend with all Thy gracious power;
Come, great Spirit, come!
Come as the light; to us reveal
Our emptiness and woe,
And lead us in those paths of light,
Whereon the righteous go.
Come as the fire and purge our hearts
Like sacrificial flame,
Let our whole soul an off’ring be
To our Redeemer’s name.
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.
Spirit divine, attend our prayers,
Make a lost world Thy home;
Descend with all Thy gracious power,
O come, great Spirit, come!
