325. Come, Holy Spirit, Our Souls Inspire

1 Come, Holy Ghost, our hearts 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 Teach us to know the Father, Son,
and thee, of both, to be but one;
that through the ages all along
this may be our endless song:

4 Praise to thy eternal merit,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
