1 Come, gracious Spirit, heavenly Dove,
with light and comfort from above;
come, be our Guardian, be our Guide,
o'er every thought and step preside.
2 The light of truth to us display,
and make us know and choose your way;
plant holy fear in every heart,
that we from God may ne'er depart.
3 Lead us to Christ, the living Way,
nor let us from his pastures stray;
lead us to holiness, the road
that we must take to dwell with God.
4 Lead us to heav'n, that we may share
fullness of joy for ever there;
lead us to God, our final rest,
to be with him for ever blest.
