Holy Spirit & Pentecost, Mystics

O God The Holy Spirit

O God the Holy Spirit,
Light to your chosen ones
Evermore shine in us.

O God the fire of love,
Evermore burn in us.

God the Lord and Giver of Life,
Evermore live in us.

God who gives sevenfold grace,
Evermore replenish us.

As the wind is your symbol,
So forward our goings.
As the dove, so launch us heavenwards.
As water, so purify our spirits.
As a cloud, so conquer our temptations.
As dew, so revive our life.
As fire, so burn away our faults.

O God the Holy Spirit,

Come!

 

– Christina Rossetti (1830-1894AD)
