Holy Spirit, dwell within us;
make us innocent again
as we were in the beginning,
on that holy morning, when
all Creation shone in glory,
knowing naught of hate or fear.
Holy Spirit, come; restore us.
Now before us, God, appear.
Holy Spirit, come, inspire us.
Shine your light into the dark.
From the ashes, light a fire that
Warms our cold and trembling hearts.
We have lost our way—the dark clouds
hide the sailors’ astral guides.
All the heav’nly flames are shrouded
and we know not day from night.
Ah! The Morning Star is shining,
promise of the coming dawn.
Holy Spirit, with your clear light
steer us; great God, lead us on.
