COME, HOLY SPIRIT
By St. Augustine
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful;
And kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created;
And, You shall renew the face of the earth.
Breathe into me, O Holy Spirit;
That all my thoughts may be holy.
Move in me, O Holy Spirit;
That my work, too, may be holy.
Attract my heart, O Holy Spirit;
That I may love only what is holy.
Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit;
That I may defend all that is holy.
Protect me, O Holy Spirit;
That I always may be holy.
Let us pray:
O God, * who by the light of the Holy Spirit, * did instruct the hearts of the faithful, * grant that by the same Holy Spirit * we may be truly wise * and ever enjoy His consolations. * Through Christ, Our Lord. *
