Full Text

1 Eternal spirit, source of light,
Enliv'ning, consecrating fire,
Descend and with celestial heat
Our dull, our frozen hearts inspire:
Our souls refine, our dross consume!
Come, condescending spirit come!

2 In our cold breasts, O strike a spark
Of the pure flame, which seraphs feel,
Nor let us wander in the dark,
Or lie benumb'd and stupid still:
Come vivifying spirit, come,
And make our hearts thy constant home!

3 Let pure devotion's fervors rise;
Let every pious passion glow:
O let the raptures of the skies
Kindle in our cold hearts below!
Come, condescending spirit, come,
And make our souls thy constant home!
