Veni, Creator Spíritus,
mentes tuórum visita,
imple supérna grátia,
quae tu creásti péctora.
Qui díceris Paráclitus,
altíssimi donum Dei,
fons vivus, ignis, cáritas,
et spiritális únctio.
Tu septifórmis múnere,
dígitus paternae déxterae,
tu rite promíssum Patris,
sermóne ditans gúttura.
Accénde lumen sénsibus;
infunde amórem córdibus,
infírma nostri córporis
virtúte firmans pérpeti.

Veni, Creator Spirittis, O Holy Ghost, Creator, come !
Mentes tuorum visita, Thy people s minds pervade ;
Itnple superna gratia And fill with thy supernal grace
Quae tu creasti pectora. The souls which thou hast made.
Qui Paraclitus diceris, Thou who art called the Paraclete,
Donum Dei altissimi, The gift of God most high ;
Fons vivus, ignis, charitas, Thou living fount, and fire, and love,
Et spiritalis unctio. Our spirit s pure ally ;
Tu septiformis munere, Thou sevenfold Giver of all good ;
Dextrae Dei tu digitus, Finger of God s right hand ;
Tu rite promissum Patris, Thou promise of the Father, rich
Sermone ditans guUtira. In words for every land ;
Accende lumen sensibus, Kindle our senses to a flame,
Infunde amorem cordibus, And fill our hearts with love,
Infirma nostri corporis, And through our bodies weakness, still
Virtute firmans perpetim. Pour valor from above !
