1 Spirit divine, inspire our prayer
and make our hearts your home;
descend with all your gracious power;
come, Holy Spirit, come!
2 Come as the light; reveal our need,
our hidden failings show,
and lead us in those paths of life
whereon the righteous go.
3 Come as the fire and cleanse our hearts
with purifying flame;
let our whole life an offering be
to our Redeemer's name.
4 Come as the dove and spread your wings,
the wings of peace and love,
until your church on earth below
joins with your church above.
