O Holy Spirit, making whole

1.
O Holy Spirit, making whole
thy church in body, mind, and soul,
thou Light of life, thou Fire divine,
inspire thy church and make it thine,
till Christ shall rule in ev-ry heart,
and Pentecost its pow'r impart.

2.
Blow, Wind of God! in wisdom blow
away all mists and clouds below!
Dispel our error, doubt and fear,
till truth shall make love's message clear,
and Christ shall rule in ev-ry heart,
and Pentecost its pow'r impart.

3. Burn, winged Flame, within each breast,
until thy Spirit, ever bless'd,
shall purge our live from dross and sin,
and peace and pow'r abide within!
So Christ shall rule in ev-ry heart,
and Pentecost its pow'r impart.

4. Inspire our lips with truth and love
to speak thy language from above;
God's message all may understand
in ev-ry age and ev-ry land,
till Christ shall rule in ev-ry heart,
and Pentecost its pow'r impart.
