1 Come, ever blessed Spirit, come,
and make thy servants' hearts thy home;
may each a living temple be,
hallowed for ever, Lord, to thee.
2 Enrich that temple's holy shrine
with sevenfold gifts of grace divine:
with wisdom, light and knowledge bless,
strength, counsel, fear, and godliness.
3 O Trinity in Unity,
one only God and persons three,
in whom, through whom, by whom we live,
to Thee we praise and glory give:
4 So grant us to receive thy grace,
that we may see thy glorious face,
and ever with the heavenly host
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
