Holy Spirit, gift divine,
precious treasure, you are mine:
mine to teach me by your Word, –
let your guiding voice be heard.
Holy Spirit, guest divine,
I would ever have you mine;
take the rubbish from my life,
sweep out idols, sin and strife.
Holy Spirit, furnish well,
holy home in which to dwell:
make my life to please you more,
on my heart engrave your law.
Oh, revealer of man’s sin,
recreating work begin;
bring to life that we may view
many now indwelt by you.
