Lyrics

Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire,
and lighten with celestial fire;
thou the anointing Spirit art,
who dost thy sevenfold gifts impart.
Thy blessed unction from above
is comfort, life, and fire of love;
enable with perpetual light
the dullness of our blinded sight.
Teach us to know the Father, Son,
and thee, of both, to be but One;
that through the ages all along
this, this may be our endless song:
