Lyrics

Come, O blessèd Spirit!
Fully to my heart,
Pour a tide of cleansing
Through its every part.

Refrain

Fill me, fill me,
With Thy power fill;
Body, soul and spirit,
Equip to do Thy will.

Blessèd, Holy Spirit,
Give Thy richest dower,
All the Savior promised;
Joy, and grace, and power.

Refrain

Love in all its fullness,
Love for friends and foes,
Love like that of Jesus,
Love that overflows.

Refrain

Peace to keep in sorrow,
Grace to stay in grief,
Peace which to all troubles
Speaks a sweet relief.

Refrain

Come, O Holy Spirit,
Give this perfect peace,
More and more forever,
Till earth cares shall cease.
