O Holy Ghost, into our minds

Send down Thy Heavenly light,
Kindle our hearts with fervent zeal
To serve God day and night.

Thou art the very Comforter,
In grief and all distress;
The heavenly gift of God most high,
No tongue can it express.

Such measures of Thy powerful grace
Grant to us, LORD, we pray,
That Thou may'st be our Comforter
At the last awful day.

Amen.
