Verse 1
Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire 
and lighten with celestial fire; 
thou the anointing Spirit art, 
who dost thy seven-fold gifts impart. 
Verse 2
Thy blessed unction from above 
is comfort, life, and fire of love; 
enable with perpetual light 
the dullness of our mortal sight. 
Verse 3
Anoint and cheer our soil├Ęd face 
With the abundance of Thy grace; 
Keep far our foes, give peace at home; 
Where Thou art Guide, no ill can come. 
Verse 4
Teach us to know the Father, Son, 
and thee, of both, to be but one, 
that through the ages all along 
this may be our endless song: 
Praise to thine eternal merit, 
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
