385. Spirit Divine, Attend Our Prayers

1 Spirit divine, attend our prayers,
and make this house your home;
descend with all your gracious powers:
O come, great Spirit, come!

2 Come as the light: to us reveal
our emptiness and woe;
and lead us in those paths of life
where all the righteous go.

3 Come as the wind: sweep clean away
what dead within us lies,
and search and freshen all our souls
with living energies.

4 Come as the fire and purge our hearts
like sacrificial flame;
let our whole soul an offering be
to our Redeemer's name.

5 Spirit divine, attend our prayers;
make a lost world your home;
descend with all your gracious powers,
O come, great Spirit, come!
