Come, Holy Ghost, Creator blest,
and in our hearts take up Thy rest;
come with Thy grace and heav’nly aid,
To fill the hearts which Thou hast made.
O Comforter, to Thee we cry,
Thou heav’nly gift of God most high,
Thou Fount of life, and Fire of love,
and sweet anointing from above.
O Finger of the hand divine,
the sevenfold gifts of grace are thine;
true promise of the Father thou,
who dost the tongue with power endow.

and shed thy love in every heart;
thine own unfailing might supply
to strengthen our infirmity.
Drive far away our ghostly foe,
and thine abiding peace bestow;
if thou be our preventing Guide,
no evil can our steps betide.
Praise we the Father and the Son
and Holy Spirit with them One;
and may the Son on us bestow
the gifts that from the Spirit…

Continue to be my shield in danger, my guide in life, and my consolation at the hour of death. Amen.

Flower of Carmel
blossoming, bearing one,
Light of heaven,
Mother of God’s dear Son,
vine and virgin.
pure beyond human love,
Bless your children,
Star shining far above
this world’s ocean.
Root of Jesse,
flower in the cradling bud,
Take us to you,
keep us with you in God,
All chaste lily
rising despite the thorn,
Strengthen help us,
So feeble, soon forlorn,
Be our armour,
valiant for Christ when war
rages around us,

strong and saving.
In our stumbling

in our sorrow,

Carmel’s great friend and queen,
feast your people
from your own bliss, the unseen
grace, God’s goodness.

opening on Paradise,
Mother, win us
a place with you in Christ
crowned in glory.

You give us hope, O Mother of Mercy, that through your Scapular promise we might quickly pass through the fires of purgatory to the Kingdom of your Son. Be our comfort and our hope. Grant that our hope may not be in vain but that, ever faithful to your Son and to you, we may speedily enjoy after death the blessed company of Jesus and the saints.
Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be…
