298. Come, Holy Spirit, Heavenly Dove

1 Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove,
with all Thy quickening powers;
kindle a flame of sacred love
in these cold hearts of ours.

2 O raise our thoughts from things below,
from vanities and toys,
then shall we with fresh courage go
to reach eternal joys.

3 Awake our souls to joyful songs;
let pure devotion rise,
till praise employs our thankful tongues,
and doubt forever dies.

4 Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove,
with all Thy quickening powers;
come, shed abroad the Savior’s love,
and that shall kindle ours.
