Life-Giver

 

Spirit of God, we call on you

For your counsel and might to fill us through

Burning inside, giving outer light

Your power of protection, no evil can fight

 

Holy Spirit, life-giver, now you have spoken

Bringing wisdom and faith like dewdrops from heaven

To water the seeds that will descale the blind

Seeing an outflow of grace as our gifts are refined

 

Lead us on to be ever receptive

Like Caleb and Joshua, overcome the deceptive

To go, to obey and possess the land

Seeing all that’s glorious within your hand

 

Like Peter the fisherman, taking one giant leap

Letting our spiritual life, cast into the deep

Beyond our natural strengths we’ll go

Infilled by the Spirit, God’s love will flow.
