O holy flame, celestiai fire!
Lord, give to me this pure desire
That with its influence shed abroad, .
My soul may love thee, O my God!
Jesus, thou Saviour of Mankind,
In thee my chief delight I find:
My love is perfected in thee,
No object has such charms to me!
Thy presence fills all Heav'o with

inirth,
Raises my dancing heart from earth.

And fills my soul with all that's good!
Thou art the martyr's crown in truth,
The only lasting flow'r of youth :
The lily of each beart that's pure,
And each contender's prize secure !
O Jesus, hear a suppliant's cries,
Whose best desires toward thee rise!
For thee I seek, for thee I sigh,
Dear Lord, my wishes satisfy !

Tu casti cordis lilium,
Tu decertantis præmium.
Exaudi preces supplicum,
