1 Holy Spirit, fount of blessing,
Ever watchful, ever kind;
Thy celestial aid possessing,
Prisoned souls deliverance find;
2 Seal of truth, and bond of union,
Source of light, and flame of love,
Symbol of divine communion,
In the olive-bearing dove.
3 Heavenly guide from paths of error,
Comforter of minds distressed;
When the billows swell with terror,
Pointing to an ark of rest;
4 Promised pledge! Eternal Spirit!
Greater than all gifts below,
May our hearts thy grace inherit;
May our lips thy glories show.
