Come, Holy Ghost, Our Souls Inspire

Text: Attr. to Rhabanus Maurus, 8th-9th cent.; trans. by John Cosin, 1627
Music: Vesperale Romanum, Mechlink, 1848; adapt. from Hymns for Church and School,
Tune: VENI CREATOR, Meter: LM

 
1. Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire,
and lighten with celestial fire;
thou the anointing Spirit art,
who dost thy sevenfold gifts impart.    
2. Thy blessed unction from above
is comfort, life, and fire of love;
enable with perpetual light
the dullness of our blinded sight.
3. Anoint and cheer our soiled face
with the abundance of thy grace;
keep far our foes; give peace at home;
where thou art guide, no ill can come.
4. 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. Amen.

God Bless You!
