Holy Ghost, with Light Divine

Melody - "Light Divine", Orlando Gibbons, 1623; Seq. by Richard Jordan

Andrew Reed, 1817

Holy Ghost, with light divine
Shine upon this heart of mine;
Chase the shades of night away,
Turn the darkness into day.

2. Let me see my Savior's face,
Let me all His beauties trace;
Show those glorious truths to me
Which are only known to Thee.

3. Holy Ghost, with power divine
Cleanse this guilty heart of mine;
In Thy mercy pity me,
From sin's bondage set me free.

4. Holy Ghost, with joy divine
Cheer this saddened heart of mine;
Yield a sacred, settled peace,
Let it grow and still increase.

5. Holy Spirit, all divine,
Dwell within this heart of mine;
Cast down every idol-throne,
Reign supreme, and reign alone.

6. Bid my sin and sorrow cease,
Fill me with Thy heavenly peace;
Joy divine I then shall prove,
Light of Truth - and Fire of Love.

7. See, to Thee I yield my heart,
Shed Thy life through every part;
A pure temple I would be,
Wholly dedicate to Thee.

Originally in four eight-line stanzas. Still missing one of the "half-verses". Any ideas?
