Representative Text

1 Come, descend, O heav'nly Spirit,
Fan each spark into a Flame,
Blessings let us now inherit,
Blessings that we cannot Name
Whilst Hosannas we are singing,
May our Hearts in Rapture move,
Fell new Grace in them still springing,
Breathe the Air of purest Love.

2 Let us fail in grace's Ocean
Float on that unbounded Sea,
Guided into pure Devotion,
Kept from Paths of Error free:
On thy heav'nly Manna feeding,
Screen'd from every envious Foe;
Love, O Love for Sinners bleeding
All for thee we would forego.

3 Keep us, Lord still in Communion,
Daily nearer drawn to thee;
Sinking in the sweetest Union
Of that heart-felt Mystery:
Keep us safe from each Delusion,
Well protected from all Harms;
Free from Sin and all Confusion,
Circle us within thy Arms.
