- Abide, sweet Spirit, heav'nly Dove,
- With light and comfort from above;
- Be thou our guardian, thou our guide;
- O'er ev'ry thought and step preside.
- To us the light of truth display,
- And make us know and choose thy way;
- Plant holy fear in ev'ry heart,
- That we from God may ne'er depart.
- Lead us in holiness, the road
- Which we must keep to dwell with God;
- Lead us in Christ, the living way;
- Nor let us from his pastures stray.
- Teach us in watchfulness and prayer
- To wait for thine appointed hour;
- And fit us by thy grace to share
- The triumphs of thy conq'ring pow'r.
