about

Words & music by Steve Thorngate
Based on the 13th-century Veni Sancte Spiritu sequence

lyrics

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 is 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.
