The Holy Ghost is come

Representative Text

1 The Holy Ghost is come,
We feel His presence here;
Our hearts would now no longer roam,
But bow in filial fear.

2 This tenderness of love,
This hush of solemn power;
’Tis Heaven descending from above,
To fill this favored hour.

3 Earth’s darkness all has fled,
Heav’n’s light serenely shines,
And every heart, divinely led,
To holy thought inclines.

4 No more let sin deceive,
Nor earthly cares betray,
Oh, let us never, never grieve
The Comforter away.
