Of All the Spirit's Gifts to Me

Representative Text

1 Of all the Spirit's gifts to me,
I pray that I may never cease
to take and treasure most these three:
love, joy, and peace.

2 The Spirit shows me love's the root
of every gift sent from above,
of every flower, of every fruit,
that God is love.

3 The Spirit shows if I possess
a love no evil can destroy;
however great is my distress,
then this is joy.

4 Though what's ahead is mystery,
and life itself is ours on lease,
each day the Spirit says to me,
"Go forth in peace!"

5 We go in peace, but made aware that,
in a needy world like this,
our clearest purpose is to share
love, joy, and peace.
