1 Come, O Holy Spirit,
While we meet for prayer,
Breathe thy life within us,—
Banish ev’ry care.

Come, Spirit, Come,
Fill us now, we pray;
Shed thy beams around us,—
Beams of perfect day.

2 Come, O Holy Spirit,
Gifts of grace impart,
Comfort ev’ry mourner,—
Bin d each broken heart. [Refrain]

3 Some perhaps have wandered
From the path of right;
Blessed Holy spirit,
Bring them home tonight. [Refrain]

4 Come, O Holy Spirit,
From our Saviour’s throne;
With the blood he offered
Seal us all his own. [Refrain]
