1 Holy Spirit from above,
Gift and pledge of Jesus’ love,
To this weary soul of mine,
Come with rest and life divine.

Refrain:
Holy Spirit, come;
Holy Spirit come;
Dwell in my heart, its only guide;
Thy sweet counsel let me hear,
Make my path of duty clear.

2 Give me strength for every day,
Keep me faithful in the way;
Bid each doubt and murmur cease,
Fill me with Thy light and peace. [Refrain]

3 Now in Zion’s anxious hour,
Come with pentecostal power;
Showers of blessing widely give,
Case the dead in sin to live. [Refrain]

4 More and more of Christ reveal,
Fully my redemption seal;
Glorify my Lord in me,
Till His glory I shall see. [Refrain]
