Come, Holy Spirit, by whose grace
this school each day has run its race,
and make us, with your gifts outpoured,
a temple of the Risen Lord
where prayer and praise alike ring true,
and bread and wine make all things new.
Come, Source of wisdom and light,
and fill our studies with delight;
as searching minds the truth discern,
may all for that blessed outcome yearn
where faith and reason both believe
the one true God our minds perceive.
Come, gracious Advocate and Friend,
whose patience knows no bounds, no end,
and train us with humility
to share in Christ's own ministry
where love and mercy stand revealed,
and all life's griefs and pains are healed.
Come, Pentecostal Fire of old,
and make this timid flock so bold
that lips and lives will speed the birth
of a renewed and hallowed earth
where peace and justice, long foretold,
the dignity of all uphold.
Come, Holy Spirit, be our guide
and for our daily needs provide;
like those before, may we respond
and seek the realms which lie beyond
where hope and promise meet at last
to seal with joy a treasured past.
