Devotion to the Holy Spirit

Veni Sancte Spiritus


Veni, Sancte Spiritus,

et emitte caelitus

lucis tuae radium.


Veni, pater pauperum,

veni, dator munerum

veni, lumen cordium.


Consolator optime,

dulcis hospes animae,

dulce refrigerium.


In labore requies,

in aestu temperies

in fletu solatium.


O lux beatissima,

reple cordis intima

tuorum fidelium.


Sine tuo numine,

nihil est in homine,

nihil est innoxium.


Lava quod est sordidum,

riga quod est aridum,

sana quod est saucium.


Flecte quod est rigidum,

fove quod est frigidum,

rege quod est devium.


Da tuis fidelibus,

in te confidentibus,

sacrum septenarium.


Da virtutis meritum,

da salutis exitum,

da perenne gaudium,


Amen. Alleluia.

Come, Holy Ghost,

send down those beams,

which sweetly flow in silent streams

from Thy bright throne above.


O come, Thou Father of the poor;

O come, Thou source of all our store,

come, fill our hearts with love.


O Thou, of comforters the best,

O Thou, the soul’s delightful guest,

the pilgrim’s sweet relief.


Rest art Thou in our toil, most sweet

refreshment in the noonday heat;

and solace in our grief.


O blessed Light of life Thou art;

fill with Thy light the inmost heart

of those who hope in Thee.


Without Thy Godhead nothing can,

have any price or worth in man,

nothing can harmless be.


Lord, wash our sinful stains away,

refresh from heaven our barren clay,

our wounds and bruises heal.


To Thy sweet yoke our stiff necks bow,

warm with Thy fire our hearts of snow,

our wandering feet recall.


Grant to Thy faithful, dearest Lord,

whose only hope is Thy sure word,

the sevenfold gifts of grace.


Grant us in life Thy grace that we,

in peace may die and ever be,

in joy before Thy face.


Amen. Alleluia.
