1 Come, Holy Ghost, my spirit fill,
Till every trembling chord
With love’s ecstatic music thrill,
In full and sweet accord!

Refrain:
Open the beautiful windows of Heav’n,
The best of Thy bountiful blessings send down;
Come, let the Spirit’s anointing be giv’n,
The faith of Thy people crown.

2 Thy will, O God, be done in me;
Attune my will to Thine,
That so my life a song may be
Of harmony divine. [Refrain]

3 Then shall my life make melody,
And testify to Thee,
Till other hearts enraptured be,
And Thy salvation see. [Refrain]

4 Come, Holy Ghost, come in! come in!
Possess my ransomed soul!
Forever dwell and reign within,
With love’s supreme control. [Refrain]
