Come, Holy Spirit, come,
Let thy bright beams arise,
Dispel the darkness from our minds,
And open all our eyes.
Convince of our sins,
Then lead to Jesus’ blood
And to our wondering view reveal
The secret love of God.
Show us that loving Man
That rules the courts of bliss,
The Lord of Hosts, the Mighty God,
The eternal Prince of Peace.
’Tis thine to cleanse the heart,
To sanctify the soul,
To pour fresh life in every part
And new create the whole.
Dwell, therefore, in our hearts,
Our minds from bondage free;
Then we shall know, and praise and love,
The Father, Son and thee.
(Charles Haddon Spurgeon)
