come, Holy Spirit, come

‘Come with the gift to heal
the wounds of guilt and fear,
And to oppression’s face reveal
The kingdom drawing near.
Where chaos longs to reign,
Descend, O holy Dove,
And free us all to work again
The miracles of love.

Spirit of truth, arise:
Inspire the prophet’s voice:
Expose to scorn the tyrant’s lies,
And bid the poor rejoice.
O Spirit, clear our sight,
All prejudice remove,
And help us to discern the right,
And covet only love.’

-Michael Forster, Come Holy Spirit, Come
