Come, O Holy Spirit, come!
From Your bright and blissful Home
Rays of healing light impart.
Come, Father of the poor,
Source of gifts
Light of ev'ry human heart.
You of all consolers best,
Of the soul
most kindly Guest,
Quick'ning courage do bestow.
In hard labor You are rest,
In the heat You refresh best,
And solace give in our woe.
O most blessed Light divine,
Let Your radiance in us shine,
And our inmost being fill.
by him is wrought,
When he spurns Your gracious Will.
Cleanse our souls from sinful stain,
Lave our dryness with Your rain,
Heal our wounds and mend our way.
Bend the stubborn heart and will,
Melt the frozen, warm the chill,
Guide the steps that go astray.
On the faithful who in You,
Trust with childlike piety,
Deign Your sevenfold gift to send.
Give them virtue's rich increase,
to die in peace,
Give them joys that never end. Amen. Alleluia.

by granting that which I wish
or ask if it offended Thy Love,
which would always live in me.
Let me die to myself,
so that I may love Thee. ... continue reading
