44                       FABER'S HYMNS.
With hearts so vile how dare we venture,
Holy Ghost ! to love Thee so ? And how canst Thou, with such compassion Bear so long with things so low ?
Holy Ghost! come down upon Thy children
Give us grace, and make us Thine; Thy tender fires within us kindle, Blessed Spirit! Dove Divine !
Paraphrased from the Paradisus Animas.
Father ! Creator ! Lord Most High I Sweet Jesus ! Fount of Clemency ! Blest Spirit! who dost sanctify!
God ruling over all! The Dolors Christ did once endure, Oh grant that I, with spirit pure,
Devoutly may recall.
Jesus ! Thou didst a Mother choose,
Whose Seed the serpent's head should bruise,
Seed of a Virgin Womb ; Oh bruise that serpent now in me, Bruise him, good Lord! that I may be
Thine at the Day of Doom.
