Come, Holy Spirit, Light divine,
Illume this darkened heart of mine;
Dispel the clouds of doubt and grief,
Let Thy bright presence bring relief.

Come, Holy Spirit, Guide divine,
To this bewildered heart of mine;
Then shall I never go astray
From God’s own true and holy way.

Come, holy Comforter divine,
Enter this troubled heart of mine;
Then, with Thy gracious presence blest,
I shall be filled with sweetest rest.

Come, Holy Spirit, Strength divine,
Into this weary heart of mine;
With energy my being fill,
And make me strong to do God’s will.
