Opening Hymn

1 Come down, O Love divine,
seek thou this soul of mine,
and visit it with thine own ardor glowing;
O Comforter, draw near,
within my heart appear,
and kindle it, thy holy flame bestowing.

2 O let it freely burn,
till earthly passions turn
to dust and ashes in its heat consuming;
and let thy glorious light
shine ever on my sight,
and clothe me round, the while my path illuming.

3 Let holy charity

Mine outward vesture be,

And lowliness become mine inner clothing;

True lowlines of heart,

Which takes the humbler part,

And o’er its own shortcomings weeps with loathing.

4 And so the yearning strong,
with which the soul will long,
shall far outpass the power of human telling;
for none can guess its grace,
till Love create a place
wherein the Holy Spirit makes a dwelling.

Offertory Hymn

1 Sing to him in whom creation

Found its shape and origin;

Spirit, moving on the water,

Troubled by the God within;

Source of breath to all things breathing,

Life in whom all lives begin.


2 Sing to God, the close companion

Of our inmost thoughts and ways;

Who, in showing us his wonders,

Is himself the power to gaze;

And his will, to those who listen,

By a still small voice conveys.


3 Holy men, both priest and prophet,

Caught his accents, spoke his word;

His the truth behind the wisdom

Which as yet know not our Lord;

He the love of God eternal,

Which in Christ was seen and heard.


4 Tell of how th’ascended Jesus

Armed a people for his own;

How a hundred men and women

Turned the known world upside down,

To its dark and furthest corners

By the Wind of Whitsun blown.


5 Pray we then, O Lord the Spirit,

On our lives descend in might;

Let thy flame break out within us,

Fire our hearts and clear our sigh,

Till, white-hot in thy possession,

We, too, set the world alight.


6 Praise, o praise the Holy Spirit,

Praise the Father, praise the Word,

Source, and Truth, and Inspiration,

Trinity in deep accord:

Through they Voice which speaks within us

We thy creatures own thee Lord.


Final Hymn

1 Holy Spirit, come, confirm us
in the truth that Christ makes known;
We have faith and understanding
through your promised light alone.

2 Holy Spirit, come, console us,
come as Advocate to plead;
Loving Spirit from the Father,
grant in Christ the help we need.

3 Holy Spirit, come, renew us,
come yourself to make us live;
Holy through your loving presence,
holy through the gifts you give.

4 Holy Spirit, come, possess us,
you the love of Three in One;
Holy Spirit of the Father,

Holy Spirit of the Son.
