Pentecost Prayers: Come, Holy Spirit, Come
"Come, Holy Spirit, come; Let Thy bright beams arise; Dispel the darkness from our minds, And open all our eyes.
Cheer our desponding hearts, Thou heav'nly Paraclete; Give us to lie with humble hope At our Redeemer's feet.
Revive our drooping faith; Our doubts and fears remove; And kindle in our breasts the flames Of never-dying love.
Convince us of our sin; Then lead to Jesus' blood, And to our wond'ring view, reveal The secret love of God.
'Tis Thine to cleanse the heart, To sanctify the soul, To pour fresh life in ev'ry part, And new create the whole.
Dwell, therefore, in our hearts; Our minds from bondage free; Then we shall know and praise and love The Father, Son, and Thee."
- Joseph Hart
