O Spirit, come, dispel each cloud of sadness;
Come in Thy power, while here we meet to pray;
Tune Thou our tongues, and may our song of gladness
Praise Him who made and blessed this holy day.
O Spirit, come, and in our hearts abiding,
Teach us the right, that we may walk therein;
Show us the truth, and there our footsteps guiding,
So shall we shun the rugged path of sin.
O Spirit, come, we long for Thy appearing,
Long for Thy light upon our pilgrim way;
Long for Thy love so tender, true and cheering;
O Spirit, come, and fill our souls today.
