VENI, CREATOR

 

Come, O Creator Spirit blest!

And in our souls take up Thy rest;

Come with Thy grace and heavenly aid,

to fill the hearts which Thou hast made.

 

Great Paraclete! To Thee we cry,

O highest gift of God most high!

O font of life! O fire of love!

And sweet anointing from above.

 

Thou in Thy sevenfold gifts art known,

The finger of God's hand we own;

The promise of the Father, Thou!

Who dost the tongue with power endow.

 

Kindle our senses from above,

and make our hearts overflow with love;

with patience firm and virtue high

The weakness of our flesh supply.

 

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.

 

Oh, may Thy grace on us bestow

The Father and the Son to know,

And Thee through endless times confessed

Of both the eternal Spirit blest.

 

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. Amen.

 

 

AVE, MARIS STELLA

 

Hail, bright star of ocean,

God's own Mother blest,

Ever sinless Virgin,

Gate of heavenly rest.

 

Taking that sweet Ave

Which from Gabriel came,

Peace confirm within us,

Changing Eva's name.

 

Break the captives' fetters,

Light on blindness pour,

All our ills expelling,

Every bliss implore.

 

Show thyself a Mother;

May the Word Divine,

Born for us thy Infant,

Hear our prayers through thine.

 

Virgin all excelling,

Mildest of the mild,

Freed from guilt, preserve us,

Pure and undefiled.

 

Keep our life all spotless,

Make our way secure,

Till we find in Jesus

Joy forevermore.

 

Through the highest Heaven

To the Almighty Three,

Father, Son and Spirit,

One same glory be. Amen.
