By the waking of our hearts by the stirring of our souls may the spirit of God abide and bring us together in Christ.
Come O spirit from above
come from your celestial heights
come with Your blessed light so radiant bright.
Come O Savior of the poor,
come O source of gifts ensured
come with Your gentle hope,
so wondrous and pure.
In our labor, rest most sweet;
grateful coolness in the heat.
Console our restless lives,
by Your comfort, we seek.
Bend the stubborn heart and will,
melt the frozen, warm the chill.
Come guide our searching minds
toward Your promise fulfilled.
Grant us virtue's sure reward,
may Your gracious love be sent.
Come with Your peace and joy that shall never end.
