The translation I'm used to is:

"and in the Holy Ghost,
the Lord and giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father,
who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified,
who spake by the prophets . . ."

The language has been somewhat modernized since the 70's, and we are 
only now getting used to omitting the filioque (which of course is 
not in the Greek anyway).
