202. Spirit divine, attend our prayers

C.M.

Nox Praecissit:

J. Baptiste Calkin, 1873

Andrew Reed, 1829

Spirit divine, attend our prayers,

And make this house thy home;

Descend with all thy gracious powers,

O come, great Spirit, come!

Come as the light; to us reveal

Our emptiness and woe,

And lead us in those paths of life

Whereon the righteous go.

Come as the fire, and purge our hearts

Like sacrificial flame;

Let our whole soul an offering be

To our Redeemer's Name.

Come as the dove, and spread thy wings,

The wings of peaceful love;

And let thy Church on earth become

Blest as the Church above.

Spirit divine, attend our prayers;

Make a lost world thy home;

Descend with all thy gracious powers;

O come, great Spirit, come!

Amen.
