1 Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire,
and lighten with celestial fire;
thou the anointing Spirit art,
who dost thy sevenfold gifts impart.

2 Thy blessed unction from above
is comfort, life, and fire of love;
enable with perpetual light
the dullness of our blinded sight.

3 Anoint and cheer our soiled face
with the abundance of thy grace;
keep far our foes; give peace at home;
where thou art guide, no ill can come.

4 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:

Refrain after last stanza:
Praise to thy eternal merit,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Amen.
