476. Spirit Divine, Accept Our Prayers

1 Spirit divine, accept our prayers,
And make this house your home;
Descend with all your gracious powers,
O come, get 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 fire, and purge our hearts
Like sacrificial flame;
Let our whole soul an off'ring be
To our Redeemer's Name.

4 Come as the dove, and spread your wings,
The wings of peaceful love;
And let your Church on earth become
Blest as the Church above.

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