Page 58 - Come ! O Creator SPIRIT blest. And in our souls take up Thy rest ; Come with Thy Grace and heavenly aid, To fill the hearts which Thou hast made. Great PARACLETE ! to Thee we cry : O highest Gift of GOD most High ; O Fount of life ! O Fire of love ; And sweet Anointing from above.

Page 143 - Stay with us, Lord ! and with Thy light Illume the soul's abyss ; Scatter the darkness of our night And fill the world with bliss. O Jesu! spotless Virgin flower ! Our life and joy ! to Thee Be praise, beatitude, and power, Through all eternity.
Page 33 - Jesu ! Thou the beauty art Of angel worlds above ; Thy Name is music to the heart, Enchanting it with love.
Page 251 - Days and moments quickly flying, Blend the living with the dead; Soon will you and I be lying Each within our narrow bed.
Page 123 - 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.
