O Holy Ghost, eternal Lord,
One with the Father and the Word;
Who art, and wast, and aye shalt be,
While ages pass, eternally.
Thou spring of Life, Thou source of Light,
Fountain of Goodness, God of Might;
By Thee the Love of God is known,
And Christ in all His fulness shown.
O Lord of grace, how good Thou art,
To soothe with balm the wounded heart;
To fire with zeal the fainting soul,
To teach, to comfort, and control.
To Thee eternal praise be given,
Thou Light of earth, Thou Joy of heaven;
Who from the Immortal Father came,
In living tongues of fiery flame.
Eternal Spirit, One in Three—
Father and Son unite with Thee,
In one great, glorious Trinity,
Now, and for evermore to be. Amen.
