Strengthen me, Holy Spirit, that I may defend all that is holy. Protect me, Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy.

Spirit of right judgment and courage, guide us and make us firm in our baptismal decision to follow Jesus' way of love.

Come, O Creator, Spirit blest, and in our souls take up thy rest. Come with thy grace and heavenly aid, to fill the hearts, which thou hast made.

Great Paraclete! To thee we cry, O highest gift of God most high! O fount of life O fire o love! And sweet anointing from above.

Thou in thy sevenfold gifts art known, the finger of God's hand we own, The promise of the Father thou, who dost the tongue with power endow.

Kindle our senses from above, and make our hearts o'erflow with love, With patience firm and virtue high, the weakness of our flesh supply. Drive far from us the foe we dread, and grant us thy true peace in stead; 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. All glory, while the ages run, Be to the Father, and the Son, who rose from death, the same to thee O HOLY Ghost eternally.

Mark me, Dear Lord, with the sign of They true disciples, and animate me in all things with They Spirit. Amen.
