COME, Holy Ghost; Creator, come,

And visit all the souls of Thine:
Thou hast inspired our hearts with life;
Inspire them now with life divine.
Thou art the Comforter, the Gift

Of God most high, the Fire of love,
The everlasting Spring of joy,

And Holy Unction from above.
Thy gifts are manifold; Thou writ'st
God's laws in every faithful heart;
The Promise of the Father, Thou

Dost heavenly eloquence impart.
Enlighten our dark souls till they

Thy love, Thy heavenly love, embrace;
And, since we are by nature frail,

Assist us with Thy saving grace.

Unfailing comfort! heavenly Guide!
Still o'er Thy holy Church preside;
Still let mankind Thy blessings prove;
Spirit of mercy, truth and love.

By Dr. Johannes Scheffler, who wrote under the name of Angelus Silesius.
