1 He's come! let every knee be bent,
All hearts new joy resume;
Sing, ye redeem'd, with on consent,
"The Comforter is come."
2 What greater gift, what greater love,
Could God on man bestow?
Angels for this rejoice above,
Let man rejoice below!
3 Hail, blessed Spirit! may each soul
Thy sacred influence feel;
Do Thou each sinful thought control,
And fix our wavering zeal!
4 Thou to the conscience dost convey,
Those checks which we should know;
Thy motions point to us the way;
Thou giv'st us strength to go.
