Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire, * And lighten with celestial fire.
Thou the anointing Spirit art, * Who dost thy sevenfold gifts impart.
Thy blessed unction from above, * Is comfort, life, and fire of love.
Enable with perpetual light * The dulness of our blinded sight.
Anoint and cheer our soiled face * With the abundance of thy grace.
Keep far our foes, give peace at home; * Where thou art guide, no ill can come.
Teach us to know the Father, Son, * And thee, of both, to be but One;
That, through the ages all along, * This may be our endless song:
Praise to thy eternal merit, * Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

ALMIGHTY God, our heavenly Father, who hast purchased to thyself an universal Church by the precious blood of thy dear Son; Mercifully look upon the same, and at this time so guide and govern the minds of thy servants the Bishops and Pastors of thy flock, that they may lay hands suddenly on no man, but faithfully and wisely make choice of fit persons, to serve in the sacred Ministry of thy Church. And to those which shall be ordained to any holy function, give thy grace and heavenly benediction; that both by their life and doctrine they may show forth thy glory, and set forward the salvation of all men; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
ALMIGHTY God, the giver of all good gifts, who of thy divine providence hast appointed divers Orders in thy Church; Give thy grace, we humbly beseech thee, to all those who are to be called to any office and administration in the same; and so replenish them with the truth of thy doctrine, and endue them with innocency of life, that they may faithfully serve before thee, to the glory of thy great Name, and the benefit of thy holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
