Holy Spirit, Wind of Heaven

Polska Cerekiew

A poem for Pentecost 2015

 

Holy Spirit, Wind of heaven,

breathe fresh life into my soul

Come again, Thou Gift once given,

raise these bones and make me whole

 

As at creation, Lord Life-Giver,

stir the depths within my heart

Spring in me, Thou living River;

fill and flow through every part

 

Seal, Deposit, Guarantee,

Earnest of my Savior’s love,

grant me eyes of faith to see

his face who pleads for me above

 

Then come in fire in this dark hour,

Christ’s image in our hearts restore

Revive your church, your saints empower;

make us your witnesses once more.
