500. Creator Spirit, by Whose Aid

1 Creator Spirit, by whose aid
The world's foundations first were laid,
Come, visit ev'ry humble mind;
Come, pour Your joys on humankind;
From sin and sorrow set us free,
May we Your living temples be.

2 O Source of uncreated light,
The bearer of God's gracious might,
Thrice holy fount, thrice holy fire,
Our hearts with heav'nly love inspire;
Your sacred, healing message bring
To sanctify us as we sing.

3 Giver of grace, descend from high;
Your sev'nfold gifts to us supply;
Help us eternal truths receive
And practice all that we believe;
Give us Yourself that we may see
The glory of the Trinity.

4 Immortal honor, endless fame
Attend the almighty Father's name;
The Savior-Son be glorifie,
Who for all humankind has died;
To You, O Paraclete, we raise
Unending songs of thanks and praise.
