1 O Holy Spirit, giver of life,
you bring our souls immortality;
yet in our hearts are struggle and strife
we need your inward vitality:
work out within us the Father's design,
give to us life, O Spirit divine.

2 O Holy Spirit, giver of light
to minds where all is obscurity;
exchange for blindness, spiritual sight,
that we may grow to maturity:
work out within us...

3 O Holy Spirit, giver of love,
and joy and peace and fidelity,
the fruitfulness which comes from above
that self - control and humility:
work out within us...
