104. Holy Spirit, Light Divine

1 Holy Spirit, light divine,
shine upon this heart of mine;
chase the shades of night away,
turn the darkness into day.

2 Holy Spirit, pow'r divine,
cleanse this guilty heart of mine;
in your mercy pity me,
from sin's bondage set me free.

3 Holy Spirit, joy divine,
cheer this saddened heart of mine;
yield a sacred, settled peace,
let it grow and still increase.

4 Holy Spirit, all divine,
dwell within this heart of mine;
cast down ev'ry idol throne,
reign supreme, and reign alone.
