Hymn/Song Information

Come Holy Ghost our souls inspire




Come, Holy Ghost, our soul inspire,
And lighten with celestial fire;
Thou Thee anointing Spirit art,
Who dost Thy sevenfold gifts impart:

Praise to Thy eternal merit,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.



Thy blessèd unction from above
Is comfort, life, and fire of love;
Enable with perpetual light
The dullness of our blinded sight;

Praise to Thy eternal merit,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.



Anoint and cheer our soilèd face
With the abundance of Thy grace;
Keep far our foes, give peace at home;
Where Thou art guide no ill can come.

Praise to Thy eternal merit,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.



Teach us to know the Father, Son,
And Thee, of both, to be but One;
That through the ages all along
This, this may be our endless song:

Praise to Thy eternal merit,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
