1 Spirit divine, attend our prayers,
and make this house your home.
Descend with all your gracious powers.
O come, great Spirit, come!

2 Come as the light. To us reveal
our emptiness and woe.
And lead us in those paths of life
where all the righteous go.

3 Come as the fire and purge our hearts
like sacrificial flame.
Let our whole soul an offering be
to our Redeemer's name.

4 Come as the dove and spread your wings,
the wings of peaceful love.
And let the church on earth become
blest as the church above.

5 Spirit divine, attend our prayers.
Make a lost world your home.
Descend with all your gracious powers.
O come, great Spirit, come!
