1 Come, Holy Ghost, my soul inspire,
Bear witness that I'm born again;
Come, and baptize me, Lord, with fire,
Nor let a doubt or cloud remain;
Give me the sense of sin forgiven,
Sweet fore-taste of approaching heaven.
2 O give the indisputable seal,
That ascertains the kingdom mine;
True holiness I long to feel,
The signature of love divine:
O shed it in my heart abroad,
Fulness of love,of heaven, of God!
