Lyrics

Holy Spirit! Power divine!
Take and use this life of mine!
Let me but a channel be,
That Thy strength may pass thro’ me.

Holy Spirit! Love divine!
Fill, oh! fill this heart of mine!
That the world I touch may be
Reached by overflow from Thee.

Spirit! Comforter divine!
Rest and soothe this soul of mine!
That thro’ me some soul may be
Soothed and comforted of Thee.
