CAC GHB 15 : COME DOWN O LOVE DIVINE

Hymn 15:
Come down, O Love divine,
Seek thou this soul of mine,
And visit it with thine own
Ardour glowing;
O comforter, draw near,
Within my heart appear,
And kindle it, thy holy
Flame bestowing.

O let it freely burn,
Till earthly passions turn
To dust and ashes in its
Heat consuming;
And let thy glorious light
Shine ever on my sight,
And clothe me round,
The while my path illuming.

Let holy charity
Mine outward vesture be,
And lowliness become mine
Inner clothing;
True lowliness of heart,
Which takes the humbler part,
And o'er its own shortcomings
Weeps with loathing.

And so the yearning strong,
With which the soul will long,
Shall far outpass the power of
Human telling;
For none can guess its grace,
Till he become the place
Wherein the Holy Spirit
Makes his dwelling.
