1 Holy Spirit, lead us now
Boldly to the throne of grace;
While our heads in pray’r we bow,
Let Thy presence fill this place.
Holy Spirit, heav’nly Guide,
Lead us to the Crucified!

2 This is now our time of need,
This is now the day of grace;
Now, our souls with Manna feed,
Ere we leave this sacred place.
Holy Spirit, heav’nly Dove,
Lead us to the feast of love!

3 At the blessed mercy-seat
Peace and joy are freely giv’n;
While we wait at Jesus’ feet
Make this place the gate of Heav’n.
Holy Spirit, heav’nly Friend,
Now upon our hearts descend!

4 Weak and sinful though we be,
Jesus’ blood can cleanse from sin;
At the fountain full and free,
Wash and make us pure within.
Holy Spirit, Cleansing Fire,
Burn up ev’ry base desire!
