Come, Holy Ghost, Creator, come From thy bright heavenly throne, Come, take possession of our souls And make them all thy own.
Thou who are called the Paraclete, Best gift of God above, The living spring, the living fire, Sweet unction and true love.
Thou who art sevenfold in thy grace, Finger of God-s right hand; His promise, teaching little ones To speak and understand
O guide our minds with thy blest light, With love our hearts inflame; And with thy strength, which ne-er decays, Confirm our mortal frame.
Far from us drive our deadly foe; True peace unto us bring; And from all perils lead us safe Beneath thy sacred wing.
Through thee may we the Father know, Through thee th-eternal Son, And thee the Spirit of them both, Thrice-blessed Three in One.
All glory to the Father be, With his co-equal Son: The Same to thee, great Paraclete, While endless ages run.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. Alleluia! And you will renew the face of the earth. Alleluia!
Let us pray:
O God, who through the hearts of the faithful and by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant that by the gift of the same Spirit we may be always truly wise and ever rejoice in his consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
