Creator Spirit, come and visit the souls that are Yours:
fill with heavenly grace
the hearts that You created.
You are called by the names of Paraclete,
gift of God
most high, spring of life,
fire, love and the soul's anointing.
are Yours to give.
You are the finger of the Father's right
You, the clear promise of the Father,
give men's tongues the grace
Kindle a light in our minds,
pour love into our hearts
and uphold with Your unfailing strength
the frailty of our human nature.
Drive our enemy far from us
and give us always the gift of peace;
so may it be that,
with Your grace
ever guiding us in this way,
we may avoid all that is sinful.
Grant that through You
we may know the Father and the Son,
and may we ever believe You
to be the Spirit
the Father and the Son.
Glory be to God
and to the Son,
who rose from the dead,
and to the Paraclete
for ever and ever.

Let Earth exult and Heaven hear
The Hymn that grateful accents raise,
Our song of joy in Rita's praise.
By fast her sinless frame is weak;
Her livid flesh the scourges streak.
In pity for her Savior's woes,
Her days and even nights are closed. ... continue reading
