1 Come, Thou blessed Holy Spirit,
O, descend upon us now!
Let us feel Thy hallowed presence
While we meekly, humbly bow.
Holy Spirit, come, O come,
Come with heav’n’s baptismal fire;
Now in mighty power descend,
Our waiting hearts inspire.
2 Come, O sacred Inspiration!
Come, Thou dear celestial Dove,
Bring to us the great salvation,
Life, and peace, and heavenly love. [Chorus]
3 Come, divine Illuminator,
God in Christ to us reveal;
Come, O come, Thou great Refiner,
Melt and stamp us with Thy seal. [Chorus]
4 Come, Thou blessed Sanctifier,
Wash our souls from ev’ry sin;
Now apply the blood that cleanseth,
Now set up Thy throne within. [Chorus]
5 Come in Pentecostal glory,
Come with all Thy wondrous grace;
Now with all Thy wealth of blessing,
Come and fill this sacred place. [Chorus]
