1 Holy Spirit, calm the restless,
Drive away the foe of grace;
Let Thy strong and holy presence
Take possession of this place.

Hear us, holy Spirit, hear us!
Come and save us, and revive us!
Come, O Lord, for Jesus’ sake.

2 Clothe Thy messenger with power,
Make His tongue a living flame;
Give Him liberty and unction
As Thy Word He will proclaim. [Chorus]

3 Like a fire, or like a hammer
Which the rock in pieces breaks,
Cause Thy Word to fall upon us
Till the realm of darkness quakes. [Chorus]

4 And the angels in Thy presence,
Let them be rejoicing still,
As again repentant sinners
Bow submissive to Thy will. [Chorus]
