1 Come, gracious Spirit, heav'nly dove,
with light and comfort from above.
Come, be our guardian, be our guide;
o'er ev'ry thought and step preside.
2 The light of truth to us display,
and make us know and choose your way;
plant holy fear in ev'ry heart,
that we from God may ne'er depart.
3 Lead us to Christ, the living way,
nor let us from his pastures stray.
Lead us to holiness, the road
that we must take to dwell with God.
4 Lead us to heav'n, that we may share
fullness of joy forever there;
lead us to our eternal rest,
to be with God forever blest.
