THE HOLY SPIRIT




Creator Spirit, by Whose aid
The world’s foundations first were laid,
Come, visit every waiting mind;
Come, pour Thy joys on mankind;
From sin, and sorrow set us free;
And make Thy temples worthy Thee.


Thou strength of his almighty hand,
Whose power doth heaven and earth command,
Thrice holy Fount, thrice holy Fire,
Our hearts with heavenly love inspire;
Come, and Thy sacred unction bring
To sanctify us, while we sing!


Plenteous of grace, descend from high,
Rich in Thy sevenfold energy!
Give us thyself, that we may see
The Father and the Son by thee;
Make us eternal truths receive,
And practice all that we believe.


Refine and purge our earthly parts;
But, oh, inflame and fire our hearts!
Our frailties help, our vice control;
Submit the senses to the soul;
And when rebellious they are grown,
Then, lay Thy hand,
and hold them down.


Create all new; our wills control,
Subdue the rebel in our soul;
Make us eternal truths receive,
And practise all that we believe;
Give us Thyself, that we may see
The Father and the Son by Thee.


Immortal honour, endless fame,
Attend the almighty Father’s Name:
Let God the Son be glorified,
Who for lost man’s redemption died:
And equal adoration be,
Eternal omforter, to Thee.

Creator Spirit, by Whose aid
The world’s foundations first were laid,
Come, visit every pious mind;
Come, pour Thy joys on human kind;
From sin, and sorrow set us free;
And make Thy temples worthy Thee.


O, Source of uncreated heat,
The Father’s promised Paraclete!
Thrice holy Fount, thrice holy Fire,
Our hearts with heavenly love inspire;
Come, and Thy sacred unction bring
To sanctify us, while we sing!

Rich in Thy sevenfold energy!
Thou strength of His almighty hand,
Whose power does heaven and earth command:
Proceeding Spirit, our Defense,
Who dost the gift of tongues dispense,
And crownest Thy gift with eloquence!
