Holy Spirit: Remembrancer

Date added: 29/05/2020



O Holy Spirit, Giver of Life,

Illumine my sin,

Which lurks and creeps in darkness:

Give me your life,

Which swirls and leads into light.


O Holy Spirit, Inspirer of Languages,

Release my tongue

From cynical cursing,

To praise you, Father and Son,

With eloquent wisdom.


O Holy Spirit, Remembrancer,

Refresh my memory,

With words of Moses and Jesus,

To help me follow your ways

And imagine your future.


O Holy Spirit,

Cascading water, coursing down the mountainside,

Whirling wind, sweeping up the valley,

Flaming fire, crackling in the hearth,

Soothing oil, seeping into cracks in an old cricket bat,

Fill me.
