Lyrics

O King enthroned on high,
Thou Comforter divine,
Blest Spirit of all truth, be nigh
And make us Thine.

Thou art the Source of life,
Thou art our treasure store;
Give us Thy peace, and end our strife
For evermore.

Descend, O heavenly Dove,
Abide with us alway;
And in the fullness of Thy love
Cleanse us, we pray.
