Come Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Spirit, 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.

O Comforter to Thee we cry.
Thou heavenly gift of God most high.
Thou font of life and fire of love.
And sweet anointing from above.

Praise be to Thee, Father and Son,
And Holy Spirit with them one.
And may the Son on us bestow
The gifts that from the Spirit flow.

Wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude,
Knowledge, piety, fear of the Lord
The gifts that from the Spirit flow.
