Smile multi-language translations needed: "Come, Holy Spirit"

Hi all,

I'm preparing a Pentecost celebration for my Church, and would like to know how to write "Come, Holy Spirit!" in as many languages as possible, but especially:
Ukrainian
Polish
Sinhala and/or other languages of Sri Lanka
Bengali and/or other languages of Bangladesh
Languages widely spoken in the eastern parts of India
Mandarin and/or Cantonese
Filipino languages/dialects other than the official dialect (e.g. Cebuano or Ilocano)
Ewe and/or Twi and/or other Ghanaian languages
Language(s) of Nigeria other than Igbo (I've got that one)
Swahili
Languages spoken in the Sudan
Hebrew
Arabic
Farsi
Cree
Dene


In case further context is needed to choose the right translation or nuances, this is a plea from a community to the deity, asking him (singular) to come down from heaven, among and into the people of the congregation. You might also say "O Holy Spirit, come to us" or similar.

Official translations might be available in local lectionaries or hymnals for the "Pentecost Sequence" (Veni Sancte Spiritus). I've tried to look for some of these, but it's hard to do when you don't speak the language you're looking for , and some of the languages I'm hoping to gather don't have many resources online yet.

Pronunciation keys are helpful, but most of these will appear in written form on the powerpoint rather than being spoken aloud (it will be during a hymn that's already multilingual) so it's not necessary.

Thank you everyone in advance for your help! Please be sure to let me know what language you're providing.

You're welcome and thank YOU for giving me reputation points. (Most people don't do this.)

You did the right thing when you asked in the Indian forum too. I'm pretty sure தூய ஆவியே, எழுந்தருள்வீர் is the correct translation in Tamil because it's not only written in wikipedia
http://ta.wikipedia.org/wiki/தூய_ஆவியே,_எழுந்தருள்வீர் but it's easily found on lots of sites that are written entirely in Tamil.

天主聖神 is given as the Chinese equivalent here:
Veni Sancte Spiritus - ChoralWiki
but it probably only means Holy Spirit as indicated here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZFFcNot18w
天主聖神 Holy Spirit

Well, they put the word for "come" on the second line so the whole phrase is of course:
天主聖神,求你降臨 Holy Spirit, please come!

I also found a prayer to the Holy Spirit (in the vernacular) here Catholic Prayers

and here just 靈風起舞 for "Holy Spirit, please come!"
Ling feng qi wu : Sheng ling jiao yi yu ling en xian xiang pou xi (Book, 2007) [WorldCat.org]

same word here on an xls document vcbc.bc.ca/zh_HK/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Church-Book1.xls from Vancouver Chinese Baptist Church
