Come, Holy Ghost, God and Lord,
With all Your graces now outpoured
On each believer’s mind and heart;
Your fervent love to them impart.
Lord, by the brightness of Your light
In holy faith Your Church unite;
From ev’ry land and ev’ry tongue
This to Your praise, O Lord, our God, be sung:
2 Come, holy Light, guide divine,
Now cause the Word of life to shine.
Teach us to know our God aright
And call Him Father with delight.
From ev’ry error keep us free;
Let none but Christ our master be
That we in living faith abide,
In Him, our Lord, with all our might confide.
3 Come, holy Fire, comfort true,
Grant us the will Your work to do
And in Your service to abide;
Let trials turn us not aside.
Lord, by Your pow’r prepare each heart,
And to our weakness strength impart
That bravely here we may contend,
Through life and death to You, our Lord, ascend.
1 Creator Spirit, by whose aid The world’s foundations first were laid,
Come, visit ev’ry humble mind; Come, pour Your joys on humankind;
From sin and sorrow set us free; May we Your living temples be.
2 O Source of uncreated light, The bearer of God’s gracious might.
Thrice holy fount, thrice holy fire, Our hearts with heav’nly love inspire;
Your sacred, healing message bring, To sanctify us as we sing.
3 Giver of grace, descend from high; Your sev’nfold gifts to us supply,
Help us eternal truths receive And practice all that we believe;
Give us Yourself that we may see The glory of the Trinity.
4 Immortal honor, endless fame, Attend the almighty Father’s name;
The Savior Son be glorified, Who for all humankind has died;
To You, O Paraclete, we raise Unending songs of thanks and praise.
