Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire,
Thy blessed unction from above
Anoint and cheer our soiled face
Teach us to know the Father, Son,
Praise to thy eternal merit,
Veni, creator Spiritus
Qui diceris Paraclitus,
Tu septiformis munere,
Accende lumen sensibus,
Hostem repellas longius
Per te sciamus da Patrem
Deo Patri sit gloria,
