Veni, Sancte Spiritus [Hymn]


Uploaded by Diocese of St. Benedict

VENI, SANCTE SPIRITUS
Sung by John Michael Talbot
Based on the prayer ascribed to Stephen Langton,
Archbishop of Canterbury (+ 1228)

Holy Spirit, Lord of Light,
From the clear celestial height.
Thy pure beaming radiance give.

Come now Father of the poor,
Come with treasures to endure;
Come now Light of all that live!

Light immortal, Light divine,
Visit now these hearts of Thine,
And our inmost being fill
For without Your Grace all turns to ill.

Veni, sancte spiritus, veni, sancte spiritus, veni, sante spiritus.

Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
On our dryness pour Thy dew,
Wash the stains of guilt away.

Bend our stubborn heart and will;
Melt the frozen, warm the chill;
Guide our steps when we go astray.

Light immortal, Light divine,
Visit now these hearts of Thine,
And our inmost being fill
For without Your Grace all turns to ill.

Veni, sancte spiritus, veni, sancte spiritus, veni, sancte spiritus.

A Note From The Gull

Thank you, Stephen Langton, John Michael Talbot and St. Augustine.

"WE ARE AN EASTER PEOPLE AND ALLELUIA IS OUR SONG!" 
--St Augustine -354-430 AD

"Patria est communis omnium parens" - Our native land is the common parent of us all. Keep it beautiful, make it even more so.

Blessed is all of creation
Blessed be my beautiful people
Blessed be the day of our awakening
Blessed is my country
Blessed are her patient hills.

Mweh ka allay!
