1 HOLY Spirit! hear us
On this sacred day;
Come to us with blessing,
Come with us to stay.

2 Come, as once Thou camest
To the faithful few,
Patiently awaiting
Jesus’ promise true.

3 Up to heaven ascending,
Our dear Lord has gone;
Yet His little children
Leaves He not alone.

4 To His blessed promise
Now in faith we cling:--
Comforter most holy!
Spread o’er us Thy wing.

5 Lighten Thou our darkness,
Be Thyself our light;
Strengthen Thou our weakness,
Spirit of all might!

6 Spirit of adoption!
Make us overflow
With Thy sevenfold blessing,
And in grace to grow.

7 Into Christ baptizèd
Grant that we may be,
Day and night, dear Spirit,
Perfected by Thee!
