Text

O come, Creator Spirit blest,
Within this soul of Thine to rest;
Come, with Thy grace and heavenly aid,
To fill this heart which Thou hast made.

Come, holy Spirit! now descend;
Most blessed gift which God can send;
Thou Fire of Love, and Fount of Life!
Lift up our hearts, and calm our strife.

With patience firm, and virtue high,
The weakness of our flesh supply.
Kindle our senses from above,
And make our hearts o’erflow with love.
