A Prayer to the Holy Spirit

I recently heard a Byzantine clergyman say the Eastern Rite prayer, "O Heavenly King" was "the only prayer to the Holy Spirit that I know of." To remedy this, I offer these prayers:

COME HOLY GHOST, fill the hearts of thy faithful and kindle in them the fire of thy love.
V. Send forth thy spirit and they shall be created.
R. And thou Shalt renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray.
O God, who didst instruct the heart of thy faithful by the light of the Holy Ghost, Grant us by the gift of the same spirit to be truly wise and rejoice in his consolation. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

(There is also a well known hymn to the Holy Spirit.)

We beseech Thee, O Lord, let the power of the Holy Spirit be present with us, that it may both mercifully cleanse our hearts, and protect us from all adversities; through our Lord Jesus Christ.
