Come to Me, O Blessed Spirit

Representative Text

1. Come to me, O blessèd Spirit,
Enter Thou my heart today;
I am longing to receive Thee,
Come, and with me ever stay.

I am waiting, I am willing,
Thine and only Thine to be;
Make my heart Thy living temple,
Come today and dwell in me.

2. Come to me in all Thy fullness,
Take possession of my soul;
Take the will I scarce can yield Thee,
Sanctify and cleanse the whole. [Refrain]

3. Loving Spirit, make me loving,
Melt my heart, and cleanse from sin,
Satisfy my restless longings,
Make me fair and pure within. [Refrain]

4. Holy Ghost, I now receive Thee!
I accept Thy mighty power;
And, by faith, I claim Thy presence
In this solemn, sacred hour.
I believe Thee! I believe Thee!
And the blessing now I claim
Of Thy fullness, gracious Spirit;
Glory to Thy holy name!
