Come, O Creator Spirit, come

if you do not hear the tune, click here.

Come, O Creator Spirit, come,
and make within our hearts thy home.  
To us thy grace celestial give,
who of thy breathing move and live.

O Comforter, that name is thine,
of God most high the gift divine;
the well of life, the fire of love,
our souls' anointing from above.

Our senses with thy light inflame,
our hearts to heavenly love reclaim,
our bodies' poor infirmity
with strength perpetual fortify.

May we by thee the Father learn,
and know the Son, and thee discern,
who art of both, and so adore
in perfect faith forevermore.  Amen.
