Come, God Creator, Holy Ghost
Martin Luther; German text
|Come, God Creator, Holy Ghost,|
And visit thou these souls of men;
Fill them with graces, as thou dost,
Thy creatures make pure again.
2. For Comforter thy name we call.
3. Our minds illumine and refresh,
|4. Thou with thy wondrous sevenfold gifts|
The finger art of God's right hand;
The Father's word thou sendest swift
On tongues of fire to each land.
5. Drive far from us our wily foe;
6. Teach us the Father well to know,
|7. Praise to the Father, and the Son|
Who from the dead is risen again;
Praise to the Comforter be done
Both now and ever. Amen.
