1 Creator Spirit, by whose aid
the world's foundations first were laid,
come, visit every humble mind;
come, pour thy joys on humankind;
from sin and sorrow set us free,
and make us temples worthy thee.

2 O source of uncreated 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.

3 Plenteous of grace, descend from high
rich in thy sevenfold energy;
make us eternal truths receive,
and practise all that we believe;
give us thyself, that we may see
the Father and the Son by thee.

4 Immortal honour, endless fame,
attend the almighty Father's name;
the Saviour Son be glorified,
who for the world's redemption died;
and equal adoration be,
eternal Paraclete, to thee.
