Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe, 1840

Hymn 42
1. Come, Holy Ghost, our hearts inspire,
Let us thine influence prove;
Source of the old prophetic fire,
Fountain of Light and Love.

2. Come, Holy Ghost, (for moved by thee
The prophets wrote and spoke,)
Unlock the Truth, thyself the Key,
Unseal the sacred Book.

3. Expand thy wings, celestial Dove,
Brood o'er our nature's night:
On our disordered spirits move,
And let there now be light.

4. God, through himself, we then shall know,
If thou within us shine;
And sound, with all thy saints below,
The depths of love divine.
