    Spirit, strength of all the weak,
    Giving courage to the meek,
    Teaching faltering hopes to speak;
    Hear us, Holy Spirit.


    Spirit, aiding all who yearn
    More of truth divine to learn
    And with deeper love to burn;
    Hear us, Holy Spirit.


    Spirit, Fount of faith and joy,
    Giving peace without alloy,
    Hope that nothing can destroy;
    Hear us, Holy Spirit.


    Source of love and light divine,
    With that hallowing grace of Thine,
    More and more upon us shine;
    Hear us, Holy Spirit.


    Holy, loving, as Thou art,
    Come and live within our heart,
    Never from us to depart;
    Hear us, Holy Spirit.


    May we soon, from sin set free,
    Where Thy work may perfect be,
    Jesus’ face with rapture see:
    Hear us, Holy Spirit.
