6-8s. Veni, Creator. 1 COME, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire, And lighten with celestial fire! Thou the anointing Spirit art, Who dost thy sevenfold gifts impart; Thy blessed unction from above Is comfort, life, and fire of love.
2 Enable with perpetual light The dulness of our blinded sight; Anoint and cheer our soiled face With the abundance of thy grace; Keep far our foes, give peace at home Where thou art guide no ill can come.
3 Teach us to know the Father, Son, And thee, of both, to be but One; That through the ages all along This, this may be our endless song, All praise to thy eternal merit, O Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!
