Kreinto Sankta, la Spirit'
  Lumigu ĉiun per vizit',
Per ĉielfajro, ni petas Vin,
  Plenigu, Inspiranto, nin.

De Dio estas Vi la don',
  La Font' de vivo kaj admon' ;
Lumigu al la petantar'
  Okulojn blindajn en erar'.

Vizaĝojn, ho, ĝojigu, Di',
  Abunde Via grac' al ni ;
La malamikojn pelu for,
  Kaj donu pacon, ho Sinjor'.

El ambaŭ, kiel unu, Vin
  Kun Patro, Fil', sciigu nin ;
Por ke la tem' sen variant'
  Tra l' aĝoj estu nia kant' :

Laŭdata estu la merito
De l' Patro, Filo kaj Spirito.      Amen.

Arthur Llewellyn (or Llewelyn) Curry was born in 1870 and died in 1949. An Anglican priest, he collaborated on the periodical Eklezia Revuo (1918-1925), and four of his hymn translations appear in Himnaro: Unua Kolekto (n.d.), a collection of hymns that had appeared in that review. One of these, his translation of Heber's Holy, holy, holy! Lord God almighty!, is one of the sources of the composite translation now standard in Esperanto. Rev. Curry is buried in St Mary’s Church Cemetery, Bucklesham, Suffolk, England. Go to person page >
