Spirit, working in creation,
bringing order out of strife,
come among God's gathered people,
giving harmony and life.
Spirit, speaking through the prophets
so the voice of God was heard,
come, inspire, alert your people
to this day's prophetic word.
Spirit, coming from the Father
as a dove upon our Lord,
come upon your chosen people;
may your blessings be outpoured.
Spirit, driving to the desert
even God's Anointed One,
come to us in trial and testing
that God's will in us be done.
Spirit, breathed on the disciples,
giving peace where there was fear,
come among us, touch us, send us,
making Jesus' presence near.
Praise and glory, Holy Spirit,
for your love on us outpoured,
giving honor to the Father
and proclaiming Jesus ""Lord.""
