Hymn for Whit Sundy at Vespers.
(Indulgence of one hundered days each time. Plenary once a month.)
Come, O Creator Spirit blest!
And in our souls take up Thy rest;
Come with Thy grace and heavenly aid,
To fill the hearts which Thou hast made.
Kindle our senses from above,
And make our hearts o'erflow with love;
With patience firm, and virtue high,
The weakness of our flesh supply.
Great Paraclete! to Thee we cry,
O highest gift of God most high!
O Fount of Life! O Fire of Love!
And sweet anointing from above!
Far from us drive the foe we dread,
And grant us Thy true peace instead;
So shall we not, with Thee for guide,
Turn from the path of life aside.
Thou in Thy sevenfold gifts art known;
The finger of God's hand we own;
The promise of the Father Thou!
Who dost the tongue with power endow
