Come, Ho­ly Ghost, who ev­er One
Art with the Fa­ther and the Son;
Come, Ho­ly Ghost, our souls pos­sess
With Thy full flood of ho­li­ness.

In will and deed, by heart and tongue,
With all our pow­ers, Thy praise be sung;
And love light up our mor­tal frame,
Till oth­ers catch the liv­ing flame.

Almighty Fa­ther, hear our cry
Through Je­sus Christ our Lord most high,
Who with the Ho­ly Ghost and Thee
Doth live and reign eter­nal­ly.
