From the recording The Beauty of Gregorian Chant
Come, Holy Spirit, Creator blest,
and in our souls take up Thy rest;
come with Thy grace and heavenly aid to ll the hearts which Thou hast made.
O comforter, to Thee we cry,
O heavenly gift of God Most High, O fount of life and re of love, and sweet anointing from above.
Thou in Thy sevenfold gifts are known; Thou, nger of God’s hand we own;
Thou, promise of the Father, Thou
Who dost the tongue with power imbue.
Kindle our sense from above,
and make our hearts o’er ow with love;
with patience rm and virtue high
the weakness of our esh supply.
Far from us drive the foe we dread,
and grant us Thy peace instead;
so shall we not, with Thee for guide,
turn from the path of life aside.
Oh, may Thy grace on us bestow
the Father and the Son to know;
and Thee, through endless times confessed, of both the eternal Spirit blest.
Now to the Father and the Son,
Who rose from death, be glory given,
with Thou, O Holy Comforter,
henceforth by all in earth and heaven.
