VENI SANCTE SPIRITUS.
The Soul's Refreshment and her Guest, Shelter in heat, in labor Rest,
The sweetest Solace in our woe ! Come, blissful Light! oh come and fill, In all Thy faithful, heart and will,
And make our inward fervor glow.
Where Thou art, Lord! there is no ill, For evil's self Thy light can kill:
Oh let that light upon us rise ! Lord! heal our wounds, and cleanse our stains, Fountain of grace ! and with Thy rains
Our barren spirits fertilize.
Bend with Thy fires our stubborn will, And quicken what the world would chill,
And homeward call the feet that stray: Virtue's reward, and final grace, The Eternal Vision face to face,
Spirit of Love ! for these we pray.
Come, Holy Spirit! bid us live ; To those who trust Thy mercy give
Joys that through endless ages flow: Thy various gifts, foretastes of Heaven, Those that are named Thy sacred Seven,
On us, O God of love, bestow.
