1 All the guilty past is washed away,
From its penalty I’m free;
Holy Spirit, now thy might display,
Lead me on to full salvation.

Holy Spirit, come, O come,
Let thy work in me be clone!
All that hinders shall be thrown aside;
Make me fit to be thy dwelling.

2 Come, O Spirit, come to sanctify
All my body, mind and will;
Come, O come, and self now crucify,
Let me henceforth be like Jesus.

3 Make me, Holy Spirit, strong to fight
For the Lord who died for me;
Help me point the lost to Calvary’s height
Where for sinners there is mercy.

4 Perfect joy and perfect peace are mine
For my plea is heard by thee;
Thou art filling me with grace divine,
Fitted now for thy indwelling.
