1.Ho-ly Ghost! with light divine,
Shine up-on this heart of mine;
Chase the shades of night a-way,
Turn my darkness in-to day.
2.Ho-ly Ghost! with power divine,
Cleanse this gui-ty heart of mine;
Long hath sin with-out con-trol,
Held do-min-ion o'er my soul,
3.Ho-ly Ghost! with joy div-ine
sad-dened heart of mine;
Bid my ma-ny woes de-part,
Heal my wound-ed bleed-ing heart,
4.Ho-ly Spir-it! all di-vine,
Dwell with-in this heart of mine;
Cast down ev-ery i-dol throne,
Reign su-preme-and reign a-lone.
A-men
