A PENTECOST SEQUENCE
Come, oh Holy Spirit, come!
Concerns have made our spirits numb.
With fruits of joy and love and peace
Give our anxious hearts release.
When we are sick of sin and Law
Stop us cold with grace and awe.
Hold us dumbstruck, draw us near.
Stay with us this coming year.
Help us see the world anew
And do the things that He would do.
The gentle word, the warm embrace,
Let those who see us see His face.
And help us work for justice, too,
And speak up when You ask us to.
With your sevenfold gifts descend
And help us fall in Love again.
Melt us, mold us, make us new.
Veni, Sancte Spiritu!

I have come to light a fire on the earth; how I wish it were already burning (Lk.12:49).
