Rhabanus Maurus, 856, tr. by Edward Caswall, 1849
Come, Holy Ghost, Creator blest,|
Vouchsafe within our souls to rest;
Come with Thy grace and heavenly aid
And fill the hearts which Thou hast made.
2. To Thee, the Comforter, we cry,
3. The sevenfold gifts of grace are Thine,
4. Thy light to every thought impart|
And shed Thy love in every heart;
The weakness of our mortal state
With deathless might invigorate.
5. Drive far away our wily Foe
6. Make Thou to us the Father known,
7. Praise we the Father and the Son|
And Holy Spirit, with them One;
And may the Son on us bestow
The gifts that from the Spirit flow! Amen.
