O blessèd Spirit from on high,
Who came to take the Master’s place,
And work His work within our hearts,
And fill us with His heav’nly grace;
Leave us no longer comfortless,
But ever in our spirits dwell,
The Father’s presence to reveal,
The Savior’s gracious love to tell.
Bring all His teachings to our minds,
And guide us into all His truth,
Take of His own, and show to us,
The secret of immortal youth.
Convince of sin and righteousness,
Of judgment, and the life to be,
That by the cleansing power of grace
Our souls from evil may be free.
Perfect in us Christ’s holy joy,
Endue us with His promised power,
That we may live as He would live,
Until life’s glad and final hour.
