A hymn for Pentecost...
Come, deck our feast to-day
With flowers and wreaths of May,
And bring an offering holy, pure and sweet
The Spirit of all grace Makes earth His dwelling-place ;
Prepare your hearts your Lord with joy to meet!
O golden rain from heaven !
Thy precious drops be given
Upon the Church's waiting, thirsty field;
And let thy waters flow,
Where'er the sowers sow
The seed of Truth, that living fruit it yield.
Come, O thou trackless wind!
Breathe quickening o'er our mind ;
Let not the flesh to rule the soul aspire ;
O sunshine of pure Love !
Thy sweet glow let us prove,
And fill our hearts with thy soft quenchless fire.
O Spirit! stir our will
Its high aims to fulfil;
Be with us always when we go and come:
Deep in our spirits dwell,
And make their inmost cell
Thy temple pure, Thine ever-holy home."
