HOLY GHOST, COME DOWN.             43
Holy Ghost ! come down upon Thy children, Give us grace, and make us Thine;
Thy tender fires within us kindle, Blessed Spirit! Dove Divine!
Dear Paraclete ! how hast Thou waited, While our hearts were slowly turned ! How often hath Thy love been slighted, While for us it grieved and burned !
Holy Ghost! come down upon Thy children,
Give us grace, and make us Thine; Thy tender fires within us kindle, Blessed Spirit! Dove Divine !
Now, if our hearts do not deceive us, We wrould take Thee for our Lord! O clearest Spirit! make us faithful To Thy least and lightest word.
Holy Ghost! come down upon Thy children,
Give us grace and make us Thine; Thy tender fires within us kindle, Blessed Spirit! Dove Divine !
Ah ! sweet Consoler! though we cannot
Love Thee as Thou lovest us, Yet, if Thou deign'st our hearts to kindle, They will not be always thus.
Holy Ghost ! come down upon Thy children,
Give us grace, and make us Thine; Thy tender fires within us kindle, Blessed Spirit! Dove Divine !
