Veni Creator Spiritus ("Come Creator Spirit")



Come, Holy Ghost, Creator blest

And in our souls take up your rest;

Come with your grace and heavenly aid

To fill the hearts which you have made.


O Comforter, to you we cry,

O heavenly gift of God Most High,

O fount of life and fire of love,

And sweet anointing from above.


You in your sevenfold gifts are known;

You, finger of God's hand we own;

You, promise of the Father, you

Who do the tongue with power imbue.


Kindle our senses from above,

And make our hearts o'erflow with love;

With patience firm and virtue high

The weakness of our flesh supply.


Far from us drive the foe we dread,

And grant us your peace instead;

So shall we not, with you for guide,

Turn from the path of life aside.


Oh, may your grace on us bestow

The Father and the Son to know;

And you, through endless times confessed,

Of both the eternal Spirit blest.


Now to the Father and the Son,

Who rose from death, be glory given,

With you, O holy Comforter,

Henceforth by all in earth and heaven. Amen.
