|1||Thou Who camest from above,
Bringing light, and shedding love,
Gracious Spirit! Love Divine,
Let Thy Light around us shine.
|2||Thou Who once didst change our state,
Making us regenerate,
Help us evermore to be
Faithful subjects unto Thee.
|3||Where Thou art not, none can do
What is holy, just, and true;
They whose hearts Thy wisdom leads,
Think good thoughts and do good deeds.
|4||We have often grieved Thee sore;
Never let us grieve Thee more:
Thou the feeble canst protect;
Thou the wandering canst direct.
|5||We are dark,– be Thou our light;
We are blind,– be Thou our sight:
Be our comfort in distress;
Guide us through the wilderness.
|6||Praise the Blessèd Three in One;
Praise the Father and the Son;
To the Holy Ghost arise
Praise from all beneath the skies. Amen.
