The text of this invocation of the Holy Spirit is by Berthold of Regensburg (d. 1272). The melody, inspired by the Gregorian "Veni Creator," goes back to the 13th century. Published in the oldest Catholic Hymn Book, of Michael Vehe, in 1537. Sing this hymn three times, each time a tone higher.

DIRECTIONS

To Thee, the Holy Ghost, we now pray,
Firm of faith that we Thy will obey;
When our hour comes, be Thou close beside us;
Safely to our home with Thee above guide us.
Kyrieleis.
