Full Text

1 Spirit of life and truth and love,
Our Comforter and Guide,
Descend upon us, Heavenly Dove,
And with our souls abide!

2 Shine Thou upon the written word,
And on our vision whine,
That we may see our Saviour, Lord,
In ev'ry gracious line.

3 And guide us in the paths of peace
Thro' life's uneven way,
Until these earthly wandrings cease
In heaven's unclouded day.
