Hymn/Song Information

Come down O Love Divine Seek Thou




Come down, O love divine,
seek out this soul of mine
and visit it with your own ardor glowing:
O Comforter, draw near,
within my heart appear,
and kindle it, your holy flame bestowing.


O let it freely burn,
till earthly passions turn
to dust and ashes in its heat consuming:
and let your glorious light
shine ever on my sight,
and clothe me round, the while my path illuming.


And so the yearning strong
with which the soul will long
shall far surpass the power of human telling:
for none can guess God's grace
till love creates a place,
wherein the Holy Spirit makes a dwelling.
