Come, Holy Spirit, Come

Representative Text

1 Come, Holy Spirit, come;
Oh, hear my humble prayer!
Stoop down and make my heart Thy home,
And shed Thy blessing there.

2 Thy light, Thy love impart,
And let it ever be
A holy, humble, happy heart,
A dwelling-place for Thee.

3 Let Thy rich grace increase,
Through all my early days,
The fruits of righteousness and peace,
To Thine eternal praise.
