Prayer of Consecration to the Holy Spirit

On my knees before the multitude of heavenly witnesses, I offer myself, soul, and body to Thee, Eternal Spirit of God.

I adore thee, Great God, and I acknowledge Thy dominion over me.
Thou art the light and the strength of my soul, in Thee I live and move and have my being.
I desire never to grieve Thee by unfaithfulness to grace, and I pray with all my heart to be kept from the smallest sin against Thee.
Make me faithful in every thought, and grant that I may always listen to Thy voice, watch for Thy light, and follow Thy gracious inspirations.
I cling to Thee, and give myself to Thee, and ask Thee by thy compassion to watch over me in my weakness.
Holding the pierced feet of Jesus, looking at His five wounds, trusting in his Precious Blood, and adoring His Sacred Heart lacerated for love of me, I implore Thee, Holy Spirit Helper of my infirmity, so to keep me in Thy grace, that I may never sin against Thee with the sin which Thou canst forgive.
Give me grace, O Holy Ghost, Spirit of the Fathers and the son, to say to Thee always and everywhere, "Speak Lord, for Thy servant heareth."

Veni,creàtor Spìritus,
mentes tuòrum visita,
imple supérna gràtia,
quae tu creàsti péctora.
Qui dìceris Paràclitus,
donum Dei,Altìssimi,
fons vivus,ignis,càritas,
et spiritàlis ùnctio.
Tu septifòrmis mùnere,
dextrae Dei tu dìgitus,
tu rite promìssum Patris,
sermòne ditans gùttura.
Accénde lumen sénsibus:
infùnde amòrem còrdibus:
infìrma nostri còrporis
virtùte firmans pérpeti.
Hostem repéllas lòngius,
pacémque dones pròtinus:
ductòre sic te praevio
vitémus omne nòxium.
Per te sciàmus da Patrem,
noscàmus atque Fìlium,
te utriùsque Spìritum
credàmus omni témpore.
Deo Patri sit gloria,
Et Filio,qui a mortuis
Surrexit,ac paraclito,
In saeculorum saecula.
