Verse 1
Creator Spirit; by whose aid
The world's foundations first were laid;
Come, visit every waiting mind,
Come, pour Thy joys on human kind;
From sin and sorrow set us free,
And make Thy temples worthy Thee.

Verse 2
O Source of uncreated heat,
The Father's promised Paraclete,
Thrice holy Fount, thrice holy Fire,
Our hearts with heavenly love inspire;
Come, and Thy sacred unction bring
To sanctify us while we sing.

Verse 3
Plenteous of grace, descend from high,
Rich in Thy sevenfold energy;
Thou strength of His almighty hand
Whose power does heaven and earth command,
Refine and purge our earthly parts,
And stamp Thine image on our hearts.

Verse 4
Immortal honour, endless fame,
Attend the almighty Father's name;
The Saviour Son be glorified,
Who for lost man's redemption died;
And equal adoration be,
Eternal Comforter, to Thee.
