1 Holy Spirit, dwell with me,
Make me holy, like to thee;
Bring thou ev’ry tho’t of mine
Into harmony with thine;
Bring thou ev’ry tho’t of mine
Into harmony with thine.

Refrain:
Fill thou me! fill thou me!
All my heart I yield to thee!
With thy holiness divine
Fill this longing heart of mine!

2 Loving Spirit, come to me,
Make me loving, like to thee;
To its depths my being stir,
Print my Master’s likeness there;
To its depths my being stir,
Print my Master’s likeness there. [Refrain]

3 Mighty Spirit, live in me,
I would heav’nly-minded be;
Let my heart its Sovereign own,
Christ its center—Christ alone;
Let my heart its Sovereign own,
Christ its center—Christ alone. [Refrain]

4 Glorious Spirit, fill thou me!
This poor heart I yield to thee;
Take me body, spirit, soul,
Let thy life pervade the whole;
Take me body, spirit, soul,
Let thy life pervade the whole. [Refrain]
