Come Holy Ghost Creator Come And Visit

Come, Holy Ghost, Creator, come,
And visit all the souls of Thine:
Thou hast inspired our hearts with life;
Inspire them now with life divine.

Thou art the Comforter, the gift
Of God most high; the fire of love,
The everlasting spring ofjoy,
And holy unction from above.

Thy gifts are manifold; Thou writ’st
God’s laws in every faithful heart;
The promise of the Father, Thou
Dost heavenly eloquence impart.

Enlighten our dark souls, till they
Thy love, Thy heavenly love embrace;
And since we are by nature frail
Assist us with Thy saving grace.

Drive far from us the mortal foe,
And grant us to have peace within;
That, with Thy light and guidance blest,
We may escape the snares of sin.

Teach us the Father to confess,
And Son, who from the grave revived;
And, with the Father and the Son,
Thee, Holy Ghost, from both derived.

With Thee, O Father, therefore may
The Son, who was from death restor’d,
And sacred Comforter, One God,
To endless ages be adored!
