1 Holy Spirit from above,
Fill our hearts with thy pure love;
O inspire us with thy zeal;
May each soul thy presence feel.

Refrain:
Holy Spirit from thy throne above,
Fill us with the Saviour’s dying love;
Now descend upon us, Heav’nly Dove;
Come, thou blessed Comforter.

2 Take our sinful thoughts away;
Lead, O lead us lest we stray;
Holy Spirit, faithful Guide,
May each soul in thee abide. [Refrain]

3 With the altar’s sacred fire,
Touch our lips, our hearts inspire;
O illume us by thy grace;
In each soul thy image trace. [Refrain]

4 Blessed source of heav’nly light,
Now disperse the gloom of night;
In our hearts forever shine;
Fill each soul with joy divine. [Refrain]
