7th Sunday of Easter June 5th  2011

Come, Holy Ghost, Creator, come from thy bright heavenly throne,
come, take possession of our souls, and make them all thine own.

Thou who art called the Paraclete, best gift of God above,
the living spring, the living fire, sweet unction and true love.

O guide our minds with thy blest light, with love our hearts inflame;
and with thy strength, which ne’er decays confirm our mortal frame.

You take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.
You are seated at the right hand of the Father, receive our prayer.

For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord,
You alone are the Most High,. Jesus Christ,
with the Holy Spirit in the glory of God the Father.
