    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.
