1 Come Holy Ghost, our hearts inspire,
let us thine influence prove;
source of the old prophetic fire,

unlock the truth, thyself the key,
unseal the sacred book.

3 Expand thy wings, celestial Dove,

and let there now be light.

4 God, through himself, we then shall know,
if thou within us shine;
and sound, with all thy saints below,
the depths of love divine.
