Like the murmur of the dove’s song,Like the challenge of her flight,Like the vigor of the wind’s rush,Like the new flame’s eager might:Come, Holy Spirit, come.
To the members of Christ’s body,To the branches of the vine,To the church in faith assembled,To her midst as gift and sign:Come, Holy Spirit, come.
With the healing of division,With the ceaseless voice of prayer,With the power to love and witness,With the peace beyond compare:Come, Holy Spirit, come.
Jesus, Son of God most high,God from all eternity,Born as man to live and die,Hear us, holy Jesus.
Leaving Thine eternal throne,Making mortal cares Thine own,Making God’s compassion known,Hear us, holy Jesus.
By Thy life, so lone and still,By Thy waiting to fulfillIn its time Thy Father’s will,Hear us, holy Jesus.
May we mark the pattern fairOf Thy life of work and prayer,And for truth all perils dare,Hear us, Holy Jesus.
Bid us come, at last, to Thee,And forever perfect be,Where Thy glory we shall see,Hear us, holy Jesus.
