Come, Holy Ghost

Come, Holy Ghost, who ever one
Art with the Father and the Son;
Come, Holy Ghost, our souls possess
With thy full flood of holiness.

In will and deed, in heart and tongue
With all the powers, thy praise be sung;
And love light up our mortal frame
Till others catch the living flame.

Almighty Father, hear our cry
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord most high,
Who with the Holy Ghost and thee
Doth live and reign eternally.

Melody: Saint Venantius L.M.; Music: Clausener Gesangbuch, 1653; Text: St. Ambrose (?); Translator: J. H. Newman, 1801-1890
