Come, gracious Spirit, heav’nly Dove,With light and comfort from above;Be Thou our Guardian, Thou our Guide,O’er every thought and step preside,O’er every thought and step preside.
The light of truth to us display,And make us know and choose Thy way;Plant holy fear in every heart,That we from God may ne’er depart,That we from God may ne’er depart.
Lead us to holiness, the roadWhich we must take to dwell with God;Lead us to Christ, the living way,Nor let us from His pastures stray,Nor let us from His pastures stray.
Lead us to God, our final rest,To be with Him forever blest;Lead us to Heav’n, its bliss to share,Fullness of joy forever there,Fullness of joy forever there.
Gracious Spirit, Dove divine,Let Thy light within me shine;All my guilty fears remove,Fill me full of Heav’n and love.
Speak Thy pardoning grace to me,Set the burdened sinner free;Lead me to the Lamb of God,Wash me in His precious blood.
Life and peace to me impart,Seal salvation in my heart;Breathe Thyself into my breast,Earnest of immortal rest.
Let me never from Thee stray,Keep me in the narrow way;Fill my soul with joy divine,Keep me, Lord, forever Thine.
Guard me round, on every side,Save me from self righteous pride;Me with Jesu’s mind inspire,Melt me with celestial fire.
Thou my dross and tin consume,Let Thy inward kingdom come;All my prayer and praise suggest,Dwell and reign within my breast.
