Veni Sancte Spiritus — Holy Spirit, Come to Us

According to the use of the Taize community.
Performed for St. Thomas’ by Ben Burnham.

Veni Sancte Spiritus.
tr: Holy Spirit, come to us.


  1. Come, Holy Spirit, from heaven shine forth with your glorious light.
  2. Come, Father of the poor, come generous Spirit, come light of our hearts.
  3. Come from the four winds, O Spirit, come breath of God; disperse the shadows over us, renew and strengthen your people.
  4. Most kindly warming light! Enter the inmost depths of our hearts, for we are faithful to you. Without your presence, we have nothing worthy, nothing pure.
  5. You are our only comforter, peace of the soul. In the heat you shade us; in our labor you refresh us, and in trouble, you are our strength.
  6. On all who put their trust in you, and receive you in faith, shower all your gifts. Grant that they may grow in you and persevere to the end, give them lasting joy.

Veni Sancte Spiritus.
