          Veni Sante Spiritus [listen]
Veni Sancte Spiritus, et emitte
coelitus 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 Spirit, and give out
the heavenly radiance of your light;
come, father of the poor, come, giver of gifts,
come, light of all hearts;
best of comforters, sweet guest of the soul,
refreshingly sweet;
rest in labour, calm in the storm,
solace in weeping.
O most blessed light, fill the inmost heart
of thy faithful.
Without your power there is nothing in a man,
nothing is wholesome.
Wash what is soiled, water what is parched,
heal what is wounded.
Bend what is set firm, warm what is cold,
rule over what has gone astray.
Give to your faithful, who trust in you,
your sevenfold gifts.
Reward the virtuous release the rescued,
give joy for ever Amen.  Alleluia.
