(FIRST TUNE )
ST. AGNES J. B. Dykes
mf = 94. Come, Ho - ly Spir - it, Heavenly Dove, With all Thy quick’ning pow'rs;
Kin - dle a flame of
sa - cred love
In these cold hearts of ours.
p 2 See how we grovel here below, p 3 In vain we tune our lifeless songs,
In vain we strive to rise:
And our devotion dies.
With all Thy quickening powers; cr Come, shed abroad a Saviour's love, And that shall kindle ours.
ST. STEPHEN (SECOND TUNE)
Come, Thou Source of all our store! Come, with - in our bo - soms shine! AMEN.
mp 2 Thou, of comforters the best; p 4 Heal our wounds; our strength renew;
Thou, the soul's most welcome guest; On our dryness pour Thy dew;
Wash the stains of guilt away:
Bend the stubborn heart and will,
Melt the frozen, warm the chill;
Guide the steps that go astray.
mf 3 O most blessed Light divine, mf 5 On the faithful, who adore
Shine within these hearts of Thine, And confess Thee, evermore
In Thy sevenfold gifts descend; p Where Thou art not, man hath nought, Give them virtue's sure reward; Nothing good in deed or thought, Give them Thy salvation, Lord; Nothing free from taint of ill.
Give them joys that never end.
TR. E. Caswall
mf 2 The light of truth to us display,
Lead us to holiness, the road
cr 4 Lead us to heaven, that we may share That we from Thee may ne'er depart.
Fulness of joy for ever there ; mf 3 Lead us to Christ, the living Way, p Lead us to God, our final rest, Nor let us from His precepts stray ; cr To be with Him for ever blest.

2 Strong Creator, Saviour mild,
Humbled to a mortal child,
Jesus, hear and save.
Borne aloft on angels' wings,
Lord of lords, and King of kings :
Jesus, hear and save.
Judge of angels and of men,
Come, vis - it ev - 'ry hum- ble mind; Come, pour Thy joys on hu- man kind ;
Voices in unison
From sin and sor-row set us free, And make Thy temples wor - thy Thee.
fl De-scend with all Thy gracious pow'rs, o come, great Spir - it, come ! A-MEN.
mf 2 Come as the light, to us reveal p 4 Come as the dove, and spread Thy p Our emptiness and woe:
The wings of peaceful love;[wings, cr And lead us in those paths of life, cr And let Thy Church on earth become Whereon the righteous go.
Blest as the Church above. mf 3 Come as the fire, and purge our mf 5 Spirit divine, attend our prayers ;
Like sacrificial flame; [hearts Make a lost world Thy home; cr Let our whole soul an offering be Descend with all Thy gracious pow'rs, To our Redeemer's Name.
ff O come, great Spirit, come!
