1 O Holy Spirit! now descend on me,
As showers of rain upon a thirsty ground,
Cause me to flourish as a spreading tree;
May all Thy precious fruits in me be found.
2 Be Thou my teacher; to my soul reveal
The breadth and depth and height of Jesus’ love;
Now on my soul Thy blest instruction seal,
Raising my thought and heart to things above.
3 Be Thou my comforter; when I’m distressed,
Oh, gently soothe my sorrows, calm my grief;
Help me to find upon my Savior’s breast,
In every hour of trial, sure relief.
4 Be Thou my guide into all truth divine,
Give me increasing knowledge of my God;
Show me the glories that in Jesus shine,
And make my heart the place of His abode.
