Lyrics: Come, gracious Spirit, heavnly Dove, <br/>With light and comfort from above; <br/>Be Thou our Guardian, Thou our Guide, <br/>O’er every thought and step preside. <br/> <br/>The light of truth to us display, <br/>And make us know and choose Thy way, <br/>Plant holy fear in every heart, <br/>That we from God may ne’er depart. <br/> <br/>Lead us to holiness, the road <br/>Which we must take to dwell with God, <br/>Lead us to Christ, the living way <br/>Nor let us from his pastures stray. <br/> <br/>Lead us to God, our final rest <br/>To be with Him forever blest, <br/>Lead us to heaven, its bliss to share, <br/>Fullness of joy forever there.
