Far from us drive the foe we dread,
And grant us Thy peace instead;
So shall we not, with Thee for guide,
Turn from the path of life aside.
Oh, may Thy grace on us bestow
The Father and the Son to know;
And Thee, through endless times confessed,
Of both the eternal Spirit blest.
Now to the Father and the Son,
Who rose from death be glory given,
With Thou, O Holy Comforter,
Henceforth by all in earth and heaven.
—–Veni Creator Spiritus (“Come Holy Spirit, Creator Blest”)
