 1Come down, O love divine
 2.i

 4.1
 5Come down, O love divine,
 6seek Thou this soul of mine 
 7and visit it with 
 8Thine own ardour glowing;
 9O comforter, draw near,
10within my heart appear,
11and kindle it,
12Thy holy flame bestowing
13
14.2
15O let it freely burn,
16till earthly passions turn
17to dust and ashes, 
18in its heat consuming;
19and let Thy glorious light
20shine ever on my sight,
21and clothe me round,
22the while my path illuming.
23
24.3
25Let holy charity
26mine outward vesture be,
27and lowliness become
28mine inner clothing;
29true lowliness of heart,
30which takes the humbler part,
31and o'er its own shortcomings
32weeps with loathing
33
34.4
35And so the yearning strong,
36with which the soul will long,
37shall far outpass
38the power of human telling;
39for none can guess its grace,
40till he become the place
41wherein the Holy Spirit
42makes his dwelling.
43.
