1 Holy Comforter divine,
Let Thy beams upon us shine,
Warm our souls to life and love!
Bend our stubborn wills to Thine,
Fit us for the home above!

2 Messenger of love Thou art,
Come to ev’ry contrite heart,
Each desire and tho’t renew!
Hope and joy and peace impart,
Make us faithful, strong and true.

3 Holy Spirit, may we be,
Ever, only, led by Thee,
Yielding to Thy blest control.
Thou from sin hast set us free,
Come and dwell in ev’ry soul.
