Creator Spirit, by whose aid

The world's foundations first were laid,

Come, visit every humble mind;

Come, pour Thy joys on human kind;

From sin and sorrow set us free,

And make Thy temples worthy thee.

O Source of untreated light,

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.

Plenteous of grace, come from on high,

Rich in Thy sevenfold energy;

Make us eternal truth receive,

And practice all that we believe;

Give us Thyself, that we may see

The Father and the Son by Thee.

Amen.
