1 Come, O thou prince of glory come!
O dwell with us, here make thy home;
To all the nations shew thy light,
And bring the way of truth to sight.
2 To thee is known all we do need,
Thou art our comforter indeed.
We give our hearts and minds to thee,
O may thy dwelling with us be!
3 But O, thou art already here!
Our minds and senses feel thee near--
We know that thou art good and kind.
Thy grace works sweetly on our mind.
4 O fill our hearts with heavenly love!
Teach us true wisdom from above;
Our hearts and wills to thee incline,
And cause us to be wholy thine.
5 Direct our minds in all thy ways;
Our tongues imploy to shew thy praise--
So shall we serve thee as we ought
In all our actions, words and thought.
6 Grant us thy blessed spirits aid,
By which our feeble minds are stay'd!
Increase our hope, confirm our faith,
And make us faithful unto death.
7 With heav'nly aid our souls revive,
In faith, and truth, and love to thrive,
Till we with holy Angels sing:
Hosannah to the Lord our king.
