1 Come, Holy Ghost, Creator blest,
And in our hearts take up thy rest;
Come with thy grace and heav'nly aid
To fill the hearts which thou hast made;
To fill the hearts which thou hast made.

2 O Comforter, to thee we cry,
Thou heav'nly gift of God most high;
Thou font of life and fire of love,
And sweet anointing from above;
And sweet anointing from above.

3 Praise be to thee, Father and Son,
And Holy Spirit, with them one;
And may the Son on us bestow
The gifts that from the Spirit flow;
The gifts that from the Spirit flow.
