Lyrics

Come to me, O blessèd Spirit,
Enter Thou my heart today;
I am longing to receive Thee,
Come, and with me ever stay.

Refrain

I am waiting, I am willing,
Thine and only Thine to be;
Make my heart Thy living temple,
Come today and dwell in me.

Come to me in all Thy fullness,
Take possession of my soul;
Take the will I scarce can yield Thee,
Sanctify and cleanse the whole.

Refrain

Loving Spirit, make me loving,
Melt my heart, and cleanse from sin,
Satisfy my restless longings,
Make me fair and pure within.

Refrain

Holy Ghost, I now receive Thee!
I accept Thy mighty power;
And, by faith, I claim Thy presence
In this solemn, sacred hour.

I believe Thee! I believe Thee!
And the blessing now I claim
Of Thy fullness, gracious Spirit;
Glory to Thy holy name!
