A Pentecost Sequence
Come, oh Holy Spirit, come!
And make our timid hearts your own.
In Juarez, blow your mighty wind.
In Haiti, Spirit, enter in.
In war zones here and far away
Let your healing love hold sway.
Change our hearts, our hates, our lives.
Touch the place where meanness thrives.
Come, oh Spirit, open wide
The doors we like to hide behind.
The wounds we hold, the hurts we feed―
Help us, Spirit, to be freed.
And on this Feast Day, give us light
To feel His presence in the night.
Our sadness gone, our faith restored
Proclaims that Jesus Christ is Lord.
Can you remember a time when the Spirit let you see that God was near?
