COME HUMBLE SINNER




Come Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove,
With all thy quickening powers
Kindle a flame of sacred love
In these cold hearts of ours


Look, how we grovel here below,
Fond of these trifling toys
Our souls can neither fly nor go
To reach eternal joys


In vain we tune our formal songs
In vain we strive to rise
Hosannas languish on our tongues
And our devotion dies


Dear Lord! And shall we ever be.
In this poor dying state?
Our love so faint, so cold to thee
And thine to us so great?


Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove
With all thy quickening powers
Come, shed abroad a Saviour's love
And that shall kindle ours


---Alternative verses---


Come Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove,
With thy almighty powers
Kindle a flame of sacred love
In these cold hearts of ours


See how we trifle here below,
fond of these earthly toys:
our souls, how heavily they go,
to reach eternal joys.


See how we linger here below,
fond of these earthly toys:
Although thou bid'st us onward go,
to reach eternal joys.


Look, how we grovel here below,
Fond of these earthly toys
Our souls how heavily they go
To reach eternal joys


And shall we then for ever live
At this poor dying rate?
Our love so faint, so cold to thee
And thine to us so great!


Dear Lord! and shall we ever live
At this poor, dying rate?
Our love so faint, so cold to thee,
And thine to us so great?
