Hymn for Pentecost Sunday at Vespers
(Indulgence of one hundered days each time. Plenary once a month.)
O Come, Creator Spirit, visit our souls; and with Thy heavenly grace fill the hearts that were made by Thee.
Thou art called the Paraclete, the Gift of the Most High God, the Living Fountain, Fire, Love, and Spiritual Unction.
Thou art seven fold in Thy gifts; the Finger of the Father's hand; the Father's solemn Promise, that enrichest men with the gift of tongues.
Enkindle thy light in our minds; infuse thy love into our hearts; and strengthen the weaknesses of our flesh by Thine unfailing power.
Repel the enemy far from us, and delay not to give us peace; by Thou our guide, that we may shun all that could bring us harm.
Grant that, through Thee, we may know the Father and the Son; and that we may evermore confess Thee the Spirit of them both.
Glory be to God the Father, and to the Son Who rose from the dead, and to the Paraclete, for everlasting ages! Amen.
