O Holy Ghost, into our minds,
send down Thy heav'nly light,
Kindle our hearts with fervent zeal,
To serve God day and night.

Thou art the very Comforter
In grief and all distress,
The heav'nly gift of God most high,
No tongue can it express.

O Holy Ghost, into our hearts
Send down Thy heav'nly light,
Kindle our hearts with fervent zeal
To serve God day and night,

Such measures of Thy pow'rful grace
Grant to us, Lord we pray,
That Thou may'st be our Comforter
At the last awful day, At the last awful day.

O Holy Ghost, into our hearts
Send down Thy heav'nly light,
Kindle our hearts with fervent zeal
To serve God day and night,

O Holy Ghost, To serve God day and night. Amen, Amen, Amen.
