Come Holy Spirit,
Fill the hearts of your faithful
And kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.
And you shall renew the face of the earth.
O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful,
Grant by that same Spirit that we may be truly wise.
And ever enjoy His consolation, through Christ our Lord.
Come, Holy Spirit!
