Come Gracious Spirit
By Simone Browne (1680-1732)
Come, Gracious Spirit, heavenly Dove,
With light and comfort from above;
Be thou our guardian, thou our guide;
O’er every thought and step preside.
The light of truth to us display,
And make us know and choose thy way;
Plant holy fear in every heart,
That we from God may ne’er depart.
Lead us to Christ, the living Way,
Nor let us from his pastures stray;
Lead us to holiness, the road
That we must take to dwell with God.
Lead us to heaven, that we may share
Fullness of joy for ever there;
Lead us to God, our final rest,
To be with him for ever blessed.
