Communion Hymn

Spirit of God, come dwell within me,

open my heart, O come set me free

Fill me with love for Jesus, my Lord,

O fill me with living water.

Jesus is living, Jesus is here, Jesus my Lord, come closer to me

Jesus our Saviour dying for me, and rising to save his people.

Lord how I thirst, O Lord I am weak,

Lord, come to me you alone do I seek.

Lord, you are life and love and hope,

O fill me with living water.

Lord, I am blind , O Lord, I can’t see.

Stretch out your hand, O Lord, comfort me.

Lead me your way in light and in truth,

O fill me with living water.
