S. Longfellow

HOLY Spirit, truth divine,

Dawn upon this soul of mine;

Word of God, and inward light,

Wake my spirit, clear my sight.


Holy Spirit, love divine,

Glow within this heart of mine,

Kindle every high desire,

Perish self in Thy pure fire.


Holy Spirit, power divine,

Fill and nerve this will of mine;

By Thee may I strongly live,

Bravely bear, and nobly strive.


Holy Spirit, peace divine,

Still this restless heart of mine,

Speak to calm this tossing sea,

Stayed in Thy tranquility.


Holy Spirit, joy divine,

Gladden Thou this heart of mine;

In the desert ways I’ll sing:

Spring, O Well, forever spring!
