X099 Naantsi nKosi, le ntlangano
MHB289 Spirit divine, attend our prayers
1 Naantsi nKosi, le ntlangano,
Yeli banndla laKho;
Yithibel' uMoya waKho,
1 Spirit divine, attend our prayers,
And make this house Thy home;
Descend with all Thy gracious powers,
Oh, come, great Spirit, come!
2 Ababini nabathathu,
Mina Thixo, obaThathu,
ndoba khona naMi.
2 Come as the light; to us reveal
Our emptiness and woe:
And lead us in those paths of life
Where all the righteous go.
3 Moya oyiNgcwele yihla,
NgobuThixo bakho yiza,
4 Come as the wind with rushing sound
And pentecostal grace,
That all of woman born may see
The glory of your face.
4 Moya oyiNgcwele yiza,
Solahleka thina sonke,
4 Come as the dove, and spread Thy wings,
The wings of peaceful love;
And let Thy Church on earth become
Blest as Thy Church above.
5 Yihla Moya oyiNgcwele,
3 Come as the fire, and purge our hearts
Like sacrificial flame;
Let our whole soul an offering be
To our Redeemer's Name.
6 Ma siyenze indumiso,
BenguThixo emnye. Amen.
H&P 310:3 All glory to the Father be,
All glory to the Son,
All glory, Holy Ghost, to thee,
While endless ages run.
