Come Holy Ghost All Sacred Fire
Come, Holy Ghost, all sacred fire!
Come, fill this earthly temple now
Emptied of every base desire,
Reign thou within, and only thou.
Fill every chamber of my soul;
Fill all my thoughts, my passions fill,
Till under thy supreme control
Submissive rests my cheerful will.
Thou dost this moment come;
My longing soul is all thine own,
My heart is thy abiding home;
Henceforth I live for thee alone.
The altar sanctifies the gift;
The blood insures the boon divine;
My outstretched hands to Heaven I lift
And claim the Father’s promise mine.
