1 O blessed Holy Spirit,
Thou comforter divine!
In Christ is all my merit,
Through Him Thy pow’r is mine,
Thy gracious witness sealing
The purchase of His blood,
Thy holy light revealing
The hidden things of God.

O blessed Holy Spirit,
My strength and comfort be,
I know I have no merit,
But Jesus died for me.

2 O sacred cloud distilling
The dew of heaven’s grace!
With brightness Thou art filling
My soul’s most secret place.
All anxious care subduing,
All restlessness and strife,
With strength divine enduing
My weak, inconstant life. [Refrain]

3 O dove of peace, descending
With comfort in Thy wings!
Above me Thou art bending,
Sweet joy Thy presence brings.
Sent by my Lord, I claim Thee,
O precious heav’nly guest;
My friend, my guide I name Thee,
My soul’s abiding rest. [Refrain]
