Come God Creator Holy Ghost And Visit
COME, God, Creator, Holy Ghost,
And visit Thou the souls of men;
Fill them with graces, as Thou dost,
Thy creatures make pure again.
For Comforter Thy name we call,
Sweet Gift of God most high above,
A holy Unction to us all,
A living Fount, Fire, and Love.
Our minds enlighten and refresh,
Deep in our hearts let love burn bright;
Thou know’st the weakness of our flesh;
O strengthen us with Thy might.
Thou with Thy wondrous sevenfold gifts,
The Finger art of God’s right hand;
The Father’s Word Thou sendest swift
On tongues of fire to each land.
Drive far from us our wily foe,
Grant us Thy blessed peace within,
That in Thy footsteps we may go,
And shun the dark ways of sin.
Teach us to know the Father well
And Jesus Christ, His Son, our Lord,
That in our hearts true faith may dwell,
Spirit of both, aye adored!
To God the Father, God the Son
Who from the dead is risen again,
And God the Spirit, Three in One,
Be evermore praise.
