With souls upborne on wings of sacred song;
For Thy great love to us, so kind and tender,
Our noblest, sweetest strains we would prolong.

3 O Holy Spirit, help our weak endeavor;
Inspire our souls to worship and rejoice;
To Father, Son and Thee, both now and ever,
Be highest praise from every heart and voice!
