1. Creator Spirit, by whose aid
The world’s foundations first were laid,
Come, visit ev'ry humble mind;
Come, pour Thy joys on human-kind;
From sin and sorrow set us free
And make Thy temples worthy Thee.
2. O Source of uncreated light,
The Father’s promised Paraclete,
Thrice holy Fount, thrice holy Fire,
Our hearts with heav’nly love inspire.
Come and Thy sacred unction bring
To sanctify us while we sing.
3. Plenteous of grace, descend from high,
Rich in Thy sev'n-fold energy;
Make us eternal truths receive
And practice all that we believe.
Give us Thyself, that we may see
The Father and the Son by Thee.
4. Immortal honor, endless fame,
Attend th’almighty Father’s name:
The Savior Son be glorified,
Who for lost man’s redemption died:
And equal adoration be,
Eternal Paraclete, to Thee.
