For Pentecost. Based on the medieval Veni Sancte Spiritus sequence.


Come, Holy Spirit, bring light to your people,
And shine forth through all of the earth
Working and resting, we yearn for your presence.
Come show…your…light.

Come, Holy Spirit, and comfort the weary.
You are the sweet guest of the soul.
Friend of the poor, you're the giver of good things.
Come light…our…hearts.

Wash what's unclean in us. Water what’s dry in us.
Heal every wound that we have.
Bend what is rigid and melt what is frozen.
Come right…our…path.

Come with deliverance and come with eternal joy.
Fill this whole place with your fire.
Come, Holy Spirit, bring light to your people
And send…us…out.
