Come, Ho­ly Ghost, with God the Son
And God the Fa­ther, ev­er One;
Shed forth Thy grace with­in our breast,
And dwell with us a rea­dy guest.

By ev­ery pow­er, by heart and tongue,
By act and deed, Thy praise be sung;
Inflame with per­fect love each sense,
That oth­ers’ souls may kin­dle thence.

O Fa­ther, that we ask be done,
Through Je­sus Christ, Thine on­ly Son,
Who, with the Ho­ly Ghost and Thee,
Shall live and reign eter­nal­ly.
