Veni, Creator Spiritus-Come Holy Spirit, Creator Blest

    What a beautiful traditional hymn to the Holy Spirit! In Gregorian chant!

    I strongly recommend praying it every day.
    I have the Latin and English version under the video, for you.
    May The Holy Spirit be with you!


    Latin text
    English version
    (this is a poem and not a precise literal translation of the Latin)
    Veni, creator Spiritus
    mentes tuorum visita,
    imple superna gratia,
    quae tu creasti pectora.
    Come, Holy Ghost, Creator blest,
    and in our hearts take up Thy rest;
    come with Thy grace and heav'nly aid,
    To fill the hearts which Thou hast made.
    Qui diceris Paraclitus,
    altissimi donum Dei,
    fons vivus, ignis, caritas
    et spiritalis unctio.
    O Comforter, to Thee we cry,
    Thou heav'nly gift of God most high,
    Thou Fount of life, and Fire of love,
    and sweet anointing from above.
    Tu septiformis munere,
    digitus paternae dexterae
    tu rite promissum Patris
    sermone ditans guttura.
    O Finger of the hand divine,
    the sevenfold gifts of grace are thine;
    true promise of the Father thou,
    who dost the tongue with power endow.
    Accende lumen sensibus,
    infunde amorem cordibus,
    infirma nostri corporis,
    virtute firmans perpeti.
    Thy light to every sense impart,
    and shed thy love in every heart;
    thine own unfailing might supply
    to strengthen our infirmity.
    Hostem repellas longius
    pacemque dones protinus;
    ductore sic te praevio
    vitemus omne noxium.
    Drive far away our ghostly foe,
    and thine abiding peace bestow;
    if thou be our preventing Guide,
    no evil can our steps betide.
    Per te sciamus da Patrem
    noscamus atque Filium,
    te utriusque Spiritum
    credamus omni tempore.
    Praise we the Father and the Son
    and Holy Spirit with them One;
    and may the Son on us bestow
    the gifts that from the Spirit flow.
    Deo Patri sit gloria,
    et Filio qui a mortuis
    Surrexit, ac Paraclito,
    in saeculorum saecula.



    Love and Blessings, Wendy C.
