Hymn/Song Information

Eternal Spirit source of light Enliven




Eternal Spirit, source of light,
Enlivening, consecrating fire,
Descend, and with celestial heat.
Our dull, our frozen hearts inspire;
Our souls refine, our dross consume!
Come, condescending Spirit, come!


In our cold breasts, O strike a spark
Of the pure flame which seraphs feel,
Nor let us wander in the dark,
Or lie benumb'd and stupid still:
Come, vivifying Spirit, come.
And make our hearts thy constant home!


Let pure devotion's fervor rise;
Let every pious passion glow:
O let the raptures of the skies
Kindle in our cold hearts below!
Come, condescending Spirit, come,
And make our souls thy constant home!
