Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly dove

Come, holy spirit, heavenly dove,
with your life-giving powers,
kindle a flame of sacred love
in these cold hearts of ours!

2. In vain we tune our formal songs,
in vain we strive to rise;
hosannas falter on our tongues
and our devotion dies.

3. Dear Lord, and shall we linger so
in this poor dying state-
our love so faint, so cold to you,
and yours to us so great?

4. Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly dove,
with all the Saviour’s powers;
come, pour into our hearts his love
and that shall kindle ours!
