Featured Hymn: "Come Down, O Love Divine"

Author: Bianco de Siena

Translator: Richard Frederick Littledale

Tune: Down Ampney

Bulletin Blurb:

The first stanza of this text addresses the Holy Spirit as “O Love divine” and “O Comforter,” asking for His presence in our lives. The middle stanzas ask the Holy Spirit to purge us of all pride and evil passion, and to purify our love and light our path. The final stanza anticipates the greater love for God that will ensue from such purification, and recognizes that, as Paul wrote, “your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you” (1 Corinthians 6:19 ESV).
