Veni creator spiritus
Veni creator spiritus.
All hail, adored Trinity;
All hail, eternal unity;
O God the Father, God the Son,
God the Spirit, ever one.
Three persons praise we evermore,
One only God in uor hearts adore;
In thy sweet mercy ever kind
May we our sure protection find.
Ave, colenda Trinitas, an anonymous Latin hymn of the 11th century, translated John
David Chambers (1803-93)
