Representative Text

Ostinato:
Veni, Sancte Spiritus.

1 Come from the four winds, O Spirit,
come, breath of God;
disperse the shadows over us,
renew and strengthen your people.
Veni, Sancte Spiritus.

2 Father of the poor,
come to our poverty.
Shower upon us the seven gifts of your grace.
Be the light of our lives O, come.
Veni, Sancte Spiritus.

3 You are our only comforter,
Peace of the soul.
In the heat you shade us;
in our labour you refresh us,
and in trouble you are our strength.
Veni, Sancte Spiritus.

4 Kindle in our hearts
the flame of our love
that in the darkness of the world
in may glow and reach to all forever.
Veni, Sancte Spiritus.
