1 Holy Spirit, Teacher Thou!
In humility we bow;
Come, perform Thine office now,
Teach me alway.

2 Comforter in deed Thou art,
Speak to ev'ry aching heart;
Let me never from Thee part,
Comfort alway.

2 Sent to be our Guide to-day,
Walking in the narrow way;
From it may we never stray,
Guide us alway.

4 Teacher, Comforter, and Guide,
Ever in our hearts abide;
And whatever may betide,
Help us alway.
