Now Holy Spirit, Ever One
Now Holy Spirit, ever One
With God the Father and the Son,
Pour forth into our hearts, we pray,
The fullness of your grace today.
Let mouth and tongue, mind, sense, and strength
God's mighty actions tell at length;
Let love in flames of living fire
The hearts of all the world inspire.
Almighty Father, hear our cry
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord Most High,
Whom with the Spirit we adore
Forever and forever more.
- Ambrose of Milan, 4th c.
