|O Spirit of the living God,|
Thou Light and Fire Divine.
Descend upon Thy Church once more
and make it truly Thine.
Fill it with love and joy and pow'r,
with righteousness and peace.
'Til Christ shall dwell in human hearts,
and sin and sorrow cease.
Blow wind of God, with wisdom blow,
until our minds are free;
from mists of error, clouds of doubt,
which blind our eyes to Thee.
Burn winged fire,
inspire our lips with flaming love and zeal.
To preach to all Thy great good news,
God's glorious commonweal.
So shall we know the pow'r of Christ,
who came this world to save.
So shall we rise with Him to life,
which soars beyond the grave.
And earth shall win true holiness
that makes Thy children whole.
'Til perfected by Thee
we reach creation's glorious goal.
