Come, Holy Spirit; come, Holy Spirit;
come, Holy Spirit; set our hearts on fire.

1 Come, Spirit, Lord of Light,
come from your heav'nly height,
come and restore our sight.
Come, O Spirit. [Refrain]

2 Consoler, Spirit blest,
the soul's most welcome guest,
our ease in toil and stress;
come, O Spirit. [Refrain]

3 Blest Spirit, guide our way;
without your help we stray.
Come to our hearts today;
come, O Spirit. [Refrain]

4 Come set our hearts on fire,
make goodness our desire,
our weak'ning souls inspire;
come, O Spirit. [Refrain]

5 Come to us from above
and fill our hearts with love,
descend, O Heav'nly Dove.
Come, O Spirit. [Refrain]

6 Give comfort when we die,
give life with you on high,
unending joys supply;
come, O Spirit. [Refrain]
