        1. Holy Ghost, with light divine
        Shine upon this heart of mine;
        Chase the shades of night away,
        Turn the darkness into day.

        2. Let me see my Savior's face,
        Let me all His beauties trace;
        Show those glorious truths to me
        Which are only known to Thee.

        3. Holy Ghost, with power divine
        Cleanse this guilty heart of mine;
        In Thy mercy pity me,
        From sin's bondage set me free.

        4. Holy Ghost, with joy divine
        Cheer this saddened heart of mine;
        Yield a sacred, settled peace,
        Let it grow and still increase.

        5. Holy Spirit, all divine,
        Dwell within this heart of mine;
        Cast down every idol-throne,
        Reign supreme, and reign alone.

        6. See, to Thee I yield my heart,
        Shed Thy life through every part;
        A pure temple I would be,
        Wholly dedicate to Thee.
