Come, Holy Ghost, Creator come. From Thy bright heavenly throne! Come take possession of our souls, and make them all Thine own!

Thou who are 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 hellish foe, True peace unto us bring, And through all perils guide us safe Beneath thy sacred wing.
Through Thee may we the Eternal Father know, Through Thee the Eternal Son, And Thee the Spirit of them both – Thrice blessed Three in One.
Now to the Father, and the Son Who rose from death, be glory given, With Thee, O holy Comforter, Henceforth by all in earth and heaven.
