Stanza Poetry Source by First Line
Come, Holy Spirit, come,
With energy divine,
And on this poor benighted soul
With beams of mercy shine.

Come, Holy Spirit, come!, Stanza 1
From the celestial hills
Life, light, and joy, dispense!
And may I daily, hourly feel
Thy quick’ning influence.

Come, Holy Spirit, come!, Stanza 2
