COME, thou burning Spirit, come;
Lo! we stretch our hands to thee;
From the Father and the Son
Let us now thy glory see.
Come, O come great Spirit, come!
Let the mighty deed be done;
Satisfy our soul’s desire,
Now we trust thee for the fire.
2 On the altar now we lay
Soul and body, mind and will;
All the evil passions slay,
Come and every corner fill.
3 Now the sacrifice we make,
Though as dear as a right eye,
For our blessèd Saviour’s sake
Who for us did bleed and die.
4 Now by faith the gift I claim,
Bought for me by blood divine,
Through the all-prevailing name
All the promises are mine.
