1. Come, Holy Spirit, our souls inspire, And lighten with celestial fire; Thou the anointing Spirit art, Who dost Thy seven-fold gifts impart. 2. Thy blessed unction from above Is comfort, life, and fire of love; Enable with perpetual light The dullness of our mortal sight. 3. Teach us to know the Father, Son, And Thee, of both, to be but one; That through the ages all along This may be our endless song: 4. Praise to Thine eternal merit, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
