TLH#227 Come, Holy Ghost in Love

TLH#216  |  All Hymns  |  TLH#231

1. Come Holy Ghost, in love
Shed on us from above
Thine own bright ray.
Divinely good Thou art;
The sacred gifts impart
to gladden each sad heart.
Oh, come today!

2. Come, tend'rest Friend and best,
Our mot delightful Guest,
With soothing pow'r.
Rest which the weary know,
Shade mid the noon-tide glow,
Peace when deep griefs o'erflow,
Cheer us this hour.

3. Come, Light serene and still,
Our inmost bosoms fill,
Dwell in each breast.
We know no dawn but Thine:
Send forth Thy beams divine
On our dark souls to shine
And make us blest.

4. Exalt our low desires,
Extinguish passion's fires,
Heal every wound.
Our stubborn spirits bend,
Our icy coldness end,
Our devious steps attend
While heavenward bound.

5. Come, all the faithful bless;
Let all who Christ confess
His praise employ.
Give virtue's rich reward,
Victorious death accord
And, with our glorious Lord,
Eternal joy.
