1  Come, gracious Spirit, heav'nly Dove,
With light and comfort from above;
Be Thou our guardian, Thou our guide,
O'er ev'ry thought and step preside.

2  The light of truth to us display,
And make us know and choose Thy way;
Plant holy fear in ev'ry heart,
That we from Thee may ne'er depart.

3  Lead us to Christ, the living Way,
Nor let us from His precepts stray;
Lead us to holiness, the road
That we must take to dwell with God.

4  Lead us to heav'n, that we may share
Fullness of joy for ever there;
Lead us to God, our eternal rest,
To be with Him forever blest.
