Representative Text

1 Spirit of love immortal,
Promised to ev’ry heart,
Come from the heav’nly portal,
Never from us depart.

Come, Holy Spirit, Heav’nly Dove,
Dwell thou among us,
Sent from the throne above;
Kindle within us that sacred flame,
That shall thrill us anew,
With the glory of Jesus’ name.

2 Spirit of grace, descending,
As in the days of old,
Fill us with joy unending,
Pardon and peace untold. [Refrain]

3 Spirit of God attend us,
Comforter here below,
Ever with love befriend us,
Teach us Thy will to know. [Refrain]
