1. Lord God, the Holy Ghost,

In this accepted hour,

As on the day of Pentecost,

Descend in all Thy power!

2. We meet with one accord

In our appointed place,

And wait the promise of our Lord,

The Spirit of all grace.

3. Like mighty rushing wind

Upon the waves beneath,

Move with one impulse every mind,

One soul, one feeling breathe.

4. The young, the old, inspire

With wisdom from above,

And give us hearts and tongues of fire

To pray, and praise, and love.

5. Spirit of Light, explore

And chase our gloom away,

With lustre shining more and more

Unto the perfect day!

6. Spirit of Truth, be Thou

In life and death our Guide!

O Spirit of adoption, now

May we be sanctified.

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
