Come Holy Spirit
By Frederick Blanchard
Come Holy Spirit, come guide us today,
Fill the open heart with your presence,
For this is the time, this is the day,
To fill the willing, with your precious essence.
Restore the discouraged, lifting their spirits,
Bringing them out of their barren deserts,
Revealing the lush fields of your coming glory,
Feeding hungry souls, and soothing their hurts.
Independent people longing for your word,
Open their palms in quiet worship,
Readying their acceptance of your holiness,
Manifesting a life in obedience of discipleship.
Here we are Lord kneeling at the altar
Receive the musical praise within us,
Inhaling the incense of our sorrows,
Forgiving the deeds we offer and confess.
