Words by the Reverend Carl P. Daw, Jr. (born in 1944), an Episcopal priest


1.  Luke the murmur of the dove’ song,

like the challenge of her flight,

like the vigor of the wind’s rush,

like the new flame’s eager might:

come, Holy Spirit, come.

2.  To the members of Christ’s Body,

to the branches of the Vine,

to the Church in faith assembled,

to her midst as gift and sign:

come, Holy Spirit, come.

3.  With the healing of divisions,

with the ceaseless voice of prayer,

with the power to love and witness,

with the peace beyond compare:

come, Holy Spirit, come.
