Representative Text

1 Holy Spirit, while we bend,
Graciously on us descend;
Like a gentle dove appear
To each waiting spirit here.

2 Holy Spirit, come within,
Crucify this heart of sin,
Let it die upon the cross
With its soul defiling dross.

3 Holy Spirit, life provide
For the heart thus crucified,
Let it break the bonds of death
By the power of Thy breath.

4 Holy Spirit, I would be
Filled, yea, wholly filled by Thee;
Come with overflowing love,
Let me Thy sweet presence prove.

5 Holy Spirit, heav’n on earth,
Seal me with celestial birth;
Bear me on Thy wings of love
To my blissful home above.
