O Comforter, gentle and tender,
O holy and heavenly Dove;
We’re yielding our hearts in surrender,
We’re waiting Thy fullness to prove.

Refrain

We’re waiting, we’re waiting
For Thee, O heavenly Dove;
We’re yielding our hearts to surrender,
We’re waiting Thy fullness to prove.

Come strong as the wind o’er the ocean,
Or soft as the breathing of morn,
Subduing our spirit’s commotion
And cheering when hearts are forlorn.

Refrain

O come as the heart searching fire,
O come as the sin cleansing flood;
Consume us with holy desire,
And fill with the fullness of God.

Refrain

Anoint us with gladness and healing;
Baptize us with pow’r from on high;
O come with Thy filling and sealing,
While low at Thy footstool we lie.

Refrain
