|Come, Holy Ghost, Creator Blest||7|
|(VENI, CREATOR SPIRITUS )|
Come, Holy Ghost, Creator blest,
And in our hearts take up thy rest;
Come with thy grace and heavenly aid,
To fill the hearts which thou hast made,
To fill the hearts which thou hast made.
O Comforter, to thee we cry,
Thou heavenly Gift of God most High;
Thou Fount of Life and Fire of Love,
And sweet anointing from above,
And sweet anointing from above.
O Holy Ghost, though thee alone,
Know we the Father and the Son;
Be this our never changing creed,
That thou dost from them both proceed,
That thou dost from them both proceed.
Praised be the Father and the Son,
And Holy Spirit with Them One;
And may the Son on us bestow
The gifts that from the Spirit flow,
The gifts that from the Spirit flow.
