Come, O Creator Spirit
And in our souls take up Thy rest;
Come with Thy grace
and heavenly aid,
To fill the hearts which Thou hast made.
Great Paraclete! To Thee we cry,
O highest gift of God
O font of life! O fire of love!
And sweet anointing from above.
Thou in Thy sevenfold gifts
The finger of God's hand we own;
The promise of the Father, Thou!
Who dost the tongue with power endow.
Kindle our senses from above,
And make our hearts overflow with love;
With patience firm and virtue
The weakness of our flesh supply.
Far from us drive the foe we dread,
And grant us Thy true peace instead;
So shall we not, with Thee for guide,
Turn from the path of life
Oh, may Thy grace
on us bestow
The Father and the Son to know,
And Thee, through endless times confessed,
Of both, the eternal Spirit
while the ages run
Be to the Father and the Son
Who rose from death; the same to Thee,
O Holy Ghost, eternally. Amen.
