        1. Come, Holy Spirit, Come!
        Let Thy bright beams arise;
        Dispel the sorrow from our minds,
        The darkness from our eyes.

        2. Revive our drooping faith,
        Our doubts and fears remove,
        And kindle in our breasts the flame
        Of never-dying love.

        3. Convince us of our sin,
        Then lead to Jesus' blood,
        And to our wondering view reveal
        The mercies of our God.

        4. 'Tis Thine to cleanse the heart,
        To sanctify the soul,
        To pour fresh life into each part,
        And new-create the whole.

        5. Dwell, therefore, in our hearts;
        Our minds from bondage free;
        Then shall we know and praise and love
        The Father, Son, and Thee.
