1 Holy Spirit, Lord Divine,
Come, from heights of heav'n and shine,
Come with blessed radiance bright!

2 Come, O Father of the poor,
Come, whose treasured gifts endure,
Come, our heart's unfailing light!

3 Of consolers, wisest, best,
And our soul's most welcome guest,
Sweet refreshment sweet repose.

4 In our labor rest most sweet,
Pleasant coolness in the heat,
Consolation in our woes.

5 Light most blessed, shine with grace
In our heart's most secret place,
Fill your faithful through and through.

6 Left without your presence here,
Life itself would disappear,
Nothing thrives apart from you!

7 Cleanse our soiled hearts of sin,
Arid souls refresh within,
Wounded lives to health restore.

8 Bend the stubborn heart and will,
Melt the frozen, warm the chill,
Guide the wayward home once more!

9 On the faithful who are true
And profess their faith in you,
In your sev'nfold gift descend!

10 Give us virtue's sure reward,
Give us your salvation, Lord,
Give us joys that never end!
