2 Thrice holy fount, thrice holy fire,

Our hearts with heavenly love inspire;
Come, and Thy sacred unction bring

To sanctify us while we sing.
3 0 Source of uncreated light,

The Father's promised Paraclete!
From sin and sorrow set us free,

And make us temples worthy Thee.
4 Our frailties hel our wills control,

Subdue the senses to the soul;
And when rebellious they are grown,

Then lay Thy hand and hold them down.
5 Chase from our mind the infernal foe,

And peace, the fruit of love bestow;
And lest our feet should step astray,

Protect and guide us on our way.
6 Make us eternal truth receive,

And practise all that we believe;
Give us Thyself, that we may see
The Father and the Son by Thee. Amen.

2 See, how we grovel here below,

3 In vain we tune our lifeless songs, Fond of these earthly toys;

In vain we strive to rise;
Our souls, how heavily they go

Hosannas languish on our tongues,
To reach eternal joys.

And our devotion dies.
4 Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove,

With all Thy quickening powers;
Come, shed abroad a Saviour's love,
And that shall kindle ours. Amen.

By the beav'ns and earth a-dored; An - gels and arch-an - gels sing,

[blocks in formation]

6 Alleluia! Lord, to Thee,

Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Three in One, and One in Three;

Join we with the heavenly host,
Singing everlastingly
To the blessèd Trinity. Amen.
