1 Come, Holy Spirit, come
Let Thy bright beams arise;
Dispel the darkness from our minds,
And open all our eyes.
2 Cheer our desponding hearts,
Thou heavenly Paraclete;
Give us to lie with humble hope
At our Redeemer's feet.
3 Revive our drooping faith,
Our doubts and fears remove,
And kindle in our breast the flame
Of never-dying love.
4 Convince us of our sin,
Then lead to Jesus' blood,
And to our wondering view reveal
The secret love of God.
5 'Tis Thine to cleanse the heart,
To sanctify the soul,
To pour fresh life on every part,
And new-create the whole.
6 Dwell therefore in our hearts,
Our minds from bondage free;
Then we shall know, and praise, and love
The Father, Son, and Thee.
