like the challenge of her flight,
like the vigor of the wind's rush,
like the new flame's eager might:
Come, Holy Spirit, come.
2 To the members of Christ's body,
to the branches of the Vine,
to the Church in faith assembled,
to her midst as gift and sign:
Come, Holy Spirit, come.
3 With the healing of division,
with the ceaseless voice of prayer,
with the power of love and witness,
with the peace beyond compare:
Come, Holy Spirit, come.

Lord God, the Holy Ghost,
In this accepted hour,
As on the day of Pentecost,
Descend in all Thy power;
We meet with one accord
In our appointed place,
And wait the promise of our Lord,
The Spirit of all grace.
Like mighty rushing wind
Upon the waves beneath,
Move with one impulse every mind,
One soul, one feeling breathe:
The young, the old inspire
With wisdom from above;
And give us hearts and tongues of fire
To pray, and praise, and love.
Spirit of light, explore,
And chase our gloom away,
With lustre shining more and more
Unto the perfect day:
Spirit of truth, be Thou
In life and death our guide;
O Spirit of adoption, now
May we be sanctified.

in all thy plenitude of grace,
where'er the foot of man hath trod,
descend on our apostate race.
2 Give tongues of fire and hearts of love
to preach the reconciling word;
give pow'r and unction from above,
whene'er the joyful sound is heard.
3 Be darkness, at thy coming, light;
confusion, order in thy path;
souls without strength inspire with might;
bid mercy triumph over wrath.
4 O Spirit of the Lord, prepare
all the round earth her God to meet;
breathe thou abroad like morning air,
till hearts of stone begin to beat.
5 Baptize the nations; far and nigh
the triumphs of the cross record;
the name of Jesus glorify,
till every kindred call him Lord.
6 God from eternity hath willed
all flesh shall his salvation see:
so be the Father's love fulfilled,
the Savior's sufferings crowned through thee.

the fount of life, the light of men,
from fullest bliss that earth imparts
we turn unfilled to you again.
2 Your truth unchanged has ever stood;
you save all those who on you call.
To those who seek you, you are good;
to those who find you, all in all.
3 We taste you, ever-living Bread,
and long to feast upon you still;
we drink of you, the fountainhead,
our thirst to quench, our souls to fill.
4 Our restless spirits yearn for you
where'er our changeful lot is cast;
glad when you smile on us anew,
blest that our faith can hold you fast.
5 O Jesus, ever with us stay;
make all our moments calm and bright!
Chase the dark night of sin away;
shed o'er the world your holy light!

This may be our endless song:
4 Praise to Thine eternal merit,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen
