Come, Thou Holy Spirit, Come,
And from Thy celestial home
Shed a ray of light Divine,
Halelujah, Halelujah, Halelujah !

Come, Thou Father of the poor,
Come, Thou source of all our store,
Come within our bosoms shine,
Halelujah, Halelujah, Halelujah !

Thou of Comforters the best,
Thou the soul's most welcome guest,
Sweet refreshment here below,
Halelujah, Halelujah, Halelujah !

In our labor rest most sweet,
Grateful coolness in the heat,
Solace in the midst of woe.
Halelujah, Halelujah, Halelujah !

Fill the faithful who adore,
And confess Thee evermore,
In Thy sevenfold gifts descend,
Halelujah, Halelujah, Halelujah !

Give them virtue's sure reward,
Give them Thy salvation, Lord,
And them joys that never end,
Halelujah, Halelujah, Halelujah !
