Full text: 

Sancti spiritus adsit nobis gratia
quae corda nostra sibi faciat habitacula.
Spiritus alme illustrator cordium
horridas nostrae mentis purga tenebras.

Veni creator spiritus,
mentes tuorum visita.
imple superna gratia
quae tu creasti pectora.

 

English translation: 

The holy spirit's favour be among us,
That he makes himself our hearts as his home.
Nourishing spirit, heart's illumination,
Purge the horrid darkness of our mind.

Come creator spirit visit your children's thoughts, fill with celestial grace these hearts that you created.
