Veni, Creator Spiritus (Come, Creator Spirit) – Rabanus Maurus

Come, Holy Ghost, Creator blest,
And in our hearts take up Thy rest;
Come with Thy grace and heav’nly aid,
To fill the hearts which Thou hast made.

O Comforter, to Thee we cry,
Thou heav’nly gift of God Most High,
Thou Fount of Life, and Fire of Love,
And sweet anointing from above.

O Finger of the hand divine,
The sevenfold gifts of grace are thine;
True promise of the Father thou,
Who dost the tongue with power endow.

Thy light to every sense impart,
And shed Thy love in every heart;
Thine own unfailing might supply
To strengthen our infirmity.

Drive far away our ghostly foe,
And thine abiding peace bestow;
If thou be our preventing Guide,
No evil can our steps betide.

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.
