Holy Spirit Come to Me - Hoy

Song title sitting atop scripture bathed in glorious light - invoking the spirit by reading God's word.  1  Holy Spirit, come to me; open my eyes to you.  Holy Spirit, come to me; open my eyes to you.  <i>Chorus:</i>  That I may know Jesus, and I seek his face.  That I may hear his voice when he calls out my name. That I may know Jesus, and I seek his face.  That I may hear his voice when he calls out my name.  2  Holy Spirit, come to me; open my ears to you. 3  Holy Spirit, breath in me, open my life to You.  4  O my Jesus, live in me, I give my life to you.
