Representative Text

1 Holy Spirit, Heavenly dove,
Lift my heart to things above;
Teach me how to do God’s will,
In my life His plan fulfil.

2 Holy Spirit, love divine,
O’er life’s path Thy radiance shine;
Purity my every thought,
Help me love Thee as I ought.

3 Holy Spirit, heavenly light,
Banish from my mind the night;
To my soul best comfort give,
In Thy love I long to live.

4 Holy Spirit, gift of power,
I will love Thee more and more;
Be my never-failing Friend,
I will love Thee to the end.
