Refrain Hail thee, festival day!
blest day that art hallowed for ever,
day when the Holy Ghost
shone in the world with God’s grace.
1 Lo, in the likeness of fire, on those who await his appearing,
he whom the Lord foretold suddenly, swiftly, descends:
2 Forth from the Father he comes with sevenfold mystical offering,
pouring on all human so infinite riches of God:
3 Hark! for in myriad tongues Christ’s own, his chosen apostles,
preach to the ends of the earth Christ and his wonderful works:
4 Praise to the Spirit of Life, all praise to the fount of our being,
light that dost lighten all, life that in all dost abide:

Hymn: 504 Come Holy Ghost our souls inspire
1 Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire,
and lighten with celestial fire.
2 Thou the anointing Spirit art,
who dost thy sevenfold gifts impart.
3 Thy blessèd unction from above
is comfort, life, and fire of love.
4 Enable with perpetual light
the dullness of our blinded sight.
5 Anoint and cheer our soiled face
with the abundance of thy grace.
6 Keep far our foes, give peace at home:
where thou art guide, no ill can come.
7 Teach us to know the Father, Son,
and thee, of both, to be but One,
8 that through the ages all along,
this may be our endless song:
9 praise to thy eternal merit,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
