Pentecost – Sequence

Holy Spirit, Lord of light,

From the clear celestial height

Thy pure beaming radiance give.

Come, thou Father of the poor,

Come with treasures which endure;

Come, thou light of all that live!

Thou, of all consolers best,

Thou, the soul’s delightful guest,

Dost refreshing peace bestow.

Thou in toil art comfort sweet;

Pleasant coolness in the heat;

Solace in the midst of woe.

Light immortal, light divine,

Visit thou these hearts of thine,

And our inmost being fill:

If thou take thy grace away,

Nothing pure in man will stay;

All his good is turned to ill.

Heal our wounds,

our strength renew;

On our dryness pour thy dew;

Wash the stains of guilt away.

Bend the stubborn heart and will;

Melt the frozen, warm the chill;

Guide the steps that go astray.

Thou, on us who evermore

Thee confess and thee adore,

thy sevenfold gifts descend:

Give us comfort when we die,

Give us life with thee on high;

Give us joys that never end.


Veni, Sancte Spiritus,

et emitte cælitus

lucis tuæ radium.

Veni, pater pauperum,

veni, dator munerum,

veni, lumen cordium.

Consolator optime,

dulcis hospes animæ,

dulce refrigerium.

In labore requies,

in æstu temperies,

in fletu solacium.

O lux beatissima,

reple cordis intima

tuorum fidelium.

Sine tuo numine

nihil est in homine,

nihi est innoxium.

Lava quod est sordidum,

riga quod est aridum,

sana quod est saucium.

Flecte quod est rigidum,

fove quod est frigidum,

rege quod est devium.

Da tuis fidelibus,

in te confidentibus,

sacrum septenarium.

Da virtutis meritum

da salutis exitum,

da perenne gaudium.
