Lyrics below:


Veni, creator Spiritus              Come, Creator Spirit,
Mentes tuorum visita,             And with Your visit,
Imple superna gratia,             Fill, with Your grace from above
Quae tu creasti pectora.        These hearts which You have created.

Qui diceris Paraclitus,            You, who are called Counselor,
Donum Dei altissimi,              You are the gift of God the highest,
Fons vivus, ignis, caritas        Fountain of life, Fire of love,
Et spiritalis unctio.                  and spiritual unction.

Tu septiformis munere,          You who have sevenfold roles,
Dextrae Dei tu digitus             Finger of the right hand of God;
Tu rite promissum Patris        You are the rightly promise of the Father
Sermone ditans guttura.         Empower my throat for speaking.

Accende lumen sensibus,      Kindle our senses with light,
Infunde amorem cordibus,      Pour love upon our hearts
Infirma nostri corporis,            That our weak bodies
Virtute firmans perpeti.            May endure, and be confirmed in virtue.

Hostem repellas longius          Drive far away our enemy,
Pacemque dones protinus;     Peace, grant to us
Ductore sic te praevio             So You may guide us as before
Vitemus omne noxium.           And we may avoid all that brings hurt.

Per te sciamus da Patrem     Grant that, through You, let us know the Father,
Noscamus atque Filium,        And the Eternal Son,
Te utriusque Spiritum             And with you both, O Spirit,
Credamus omni tempore.     That we may believe, forever.

Deo Patri sit gloria,                 With God the Father is glory,
Et Filio, qui a mortuis              And the Son, who, from the dead,
Surrexit, ac Paraclito,             He arose! And the Paraclete
In saeculorum saecula.          For ever and ever,

Come, O come, and fill this temple.
Fill this temple with the glory of the Lord
Come, O come, and fill this temple.
Fill this temple with the glory of the Lord.

Lord we wait, with open arms
We’re hungry for Your touch
Lord, we worship now Your Name, O Jesus
Forgive us Lord, for grieving You
Pour down, Your heart anew
With the fire and the zeal of Pentecost!

Every time I, feel the Spirit
Movin’ in my heart, I will pray.
Every time I, feel the Spirit
Movin’ in my heart, I will pray.

Upon the mountain, when my Lord spoke
Out of His mouth came fire and smoke;
Looked all around me, it looked so fine,
Till I asked my Lord if it were mine.

Oh I have sorrows, and I have woe
And I have heartaches here below;
But my God leads me, I’m in His care.
And I can feel Him everywhere.

Lord, I need Your Holy Spirit
Breathe into this heart of mine
And possess my inmost being
And give me, Lord, a heart like Thine.

I asked the Lord, that He’d show up,
Yes, I did, Yes, I did!
He came and filled my empty cup,
Yes, He did, Yes, He did!

I can tell the world about this
I can tell the nations, I’m blest
Tell them that Jesus made me whole
And He brought joy, joy, joy, to my soul!

He took my feet from the miry clay,
Yes, He did, Yes, He did!
And placed them on the Rock to stay,
Yes, He did, Yes, He did!

My Lord, did just what he said,
Yes, He did, Yes, He did!
He healed the sick and raised the dead.
Yes, He did, Yes, He did!

New arrangement by Nick Alexander

Holy Ghost, descend upon Your children
Grant us grace, and make us Thine
Your tender fires, within us kindle.
Blessed Spirit! Dove divine!

1. For all within us good and holy
Is from You, Your precious gift,
In all our joys and all our sorrows,
Wistful hearts, to You we lift.

2. For You to us are ever nearer,
Ever closer in Your love.
So gentle, patient, and forbearing
Holy Spirit, heav’nly Dove!

How we’ve grieved You, gracious Spirit
Wayward, wanton, cold are we;
Still our sins, new every morning,
Never yet have wearied Thee.

3. Now, let our hearts be not deceived,
Let us take You as our Lord!
O dearest Spirit! Make us faithful
To Your least and lightest Word.

Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to yourselves
In Psalms and hymns, and spiritual songs,
Singing and making melody
In your heart to the Lord.

Set my Spirit free, that I may worship Thee
Set my Spirit free, that I may praise Your Name.
Let all bondage go, and let deliverance flow.
Set my Spirit free to worship Thee.

William J. Kirkpatrick, Frank Bottome (1870)

O spread the tidings round, wherever man is found
Wherever human hearts and human woes abound;
Let ev’ry Christian tongue proclaim the joyful sound:
The Comforter has come!

The Comforter has come, the Comforter has come
The Holy Ghost from heav’n,
The Father’s promise giv’n;
O spread the tidings round, wherever man is found
The Comforter has come!

O boundless love divine, How shall this tongue of mine,
To wond’ring mortals tell the matchless grace divine,
That I, a child of hell, should in His image shine!
The Comforter has come!

Arrangement by Nick Alexander

1.Beneath Our Lady’s shadow
Were the Chosen of her Son
As they had pray’d in the upper room
Her pow’r and Spirit shone.
Her Son had left that heart to them;
For ten long nights and days.
The Savior gone, no Spirit come
She ruled their infant ways.

2. Queen of the Church! Around her shines,
The purest light of heav’n
And all created things to her,
As her domain’s been given!
Why does she wait, then, so abashed
Wrapt in ecstatic fear,
Speechless with adoration, hushed
As thought our God was near.
Was near. Was near.

Behold, He comes!
That mighty Breath from heav’ns eternal shores.

3. Earth quakes before that rushing blast,
Heav’n echoes back the sound,
And mightily the tempest wheels
That Upper Room around.
One moment and the Spirit hung
O’er her with dread desire;
Then broke upon the heads of all
In cloven tongues of fire.
Of fire. Of fire.

Who knows, just what
A sea of love Our Lady’s heart He drown’d?
Or what, new gifts
He gave her then? What ancient gifts He crown’d?

4. What gifts He gave those chosen men
Past ages can display;
E’en more their vigor still inspires
The weakness of today.
Those tongues still speak within our Church
That Fire is undecay’d;
Its wellspring was that Upper Room
Where Mary sat and pray’d.

Let us fall and worship Him
Consubstantial Breath of God
Humble Spirit, Holy God!
Sweet Your Presence be!

You’re the coeternal One
Love ‘tween Father and the Son
Jesus’ death has been our gain
As long as we have Thee!

5. Like Mary, You came to Your Church
With Your unfailing Pow’r.
Like them, descend on us with grace
Like them, descend on us with grace
Like them, descend on us with grace
In this very hour.

Veni Creator Spiritus 9th century
Tr. by Edward Caswall, 19th cent.
New arr. by Nick Alexander

1. Come, O Creator Spirit Blest
And in our souls take up Thy rest
Come with Thy grace and heav’nly aid
To fill the hearts which Thou hast made

2. Kindle our senses from above
And make our hearts o’erflow with love
With patience firm and virtue high
The weakness of our flesh supply

Great Paraclete! O Fount of Life!
O Sweet Anointing from above!
O Highest Gift, of God Most High!
To Thee we cry, Fire of Love!

3. Far from us drive the foe we dread
And grant us Thy true peace instead
So shall we not, with Thee for guide
Turn from the path of life aside.

4. Oh, may Thy grace on us bestow
The Father and the Son to know
And Thee thru endless times confess’d
Of both th’eternal Spirit blest.

5. All glory, while the ages run
Be to the Father and the Son
Who rose from death: the same to Thee,
O Holy Ghost eternally.
