Come, gracious Spirit, heav'nly dove,
With light and comfort from above.
Come, be our guardian and our guide;
O'er every thought and step preside.
The Light of truth to us display
And make us know and choose your way;
Plant holy fear in every heart,
That we from God may ne'er depart.
Lead us to Christ, the living way,
Nor let us from his pastures stray;
Lead us to holiness, the road
That we must take to dwell with God.
Lead us to heav'n, that we may share
Fullness of joy forever there;
Lead us to our eternal rest,
To be with god forever blest.
