Come down, O fire, enlighten all my life
and give my spirit breath through all the day
so I may come to life from cold, dead clay
prepared to go and tell of love in strife.

in fights that call the Christian drunk or mad
in days with minds that block the word of God
with steps both firm and calm so may I trod
the city streets or country roads as glad

to tell the words of love and of release
from sin and death and terrors of the night
that plague this world with fears and hates and greeds

Come down O Holy Spirit bring a cease
to all the world’s long night through God’s pure light
in love that reaches all the world’s deep needs
