Come down, O Love divine,
seek thou this soul of mine,
and visit it with thine own ardor glowing;
O Comforter, draw near,
within my heart appear,
and kindle it, thy holy flame bestowing.

O let it freely burn,
till earthly passions turn
to dust and ashes in its heat consuming;
and let thy glorious light
shine ever on my sight,
and clothe me round, the while my path illuming.

And so the yearning strong,
with which the soul will long,
shall far out pass the power of human telling;
for none can guess its grace,
till Love create a place
wherein the Holy Spirit makes a dwelling.

Bianco da Siena (c1350-1434), trans. Richard Frederick Littledale (1833-1890)
Tune: Down Ampney, Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958)

This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

The Collect prayer for the Feast of Pentecost

Holy Spirit, sent by the Father,
ignite in us your holy fire;
strengthen your children with the gift of faith,
revive your Church with the breath of love,
and renew the face of the earth,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done; on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.

The Lord is here.
His spirit is with us.


Filled with the spirit’s power, go in the light and peace of Christ.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Thanks be to God.
Alleluia, alleluia!

Make way, make way
For Christ the King
In splendour arrives
Fling wide the gates and welcome Him
Into your lives.
Make way! (Make way!) Make way! (Make way!)
For the King of kings (For the King of kings)
Make way! (Make way!) Make way! (Make way!)
And let His kingdom in!

He comes the broken hearts to heal
The prisoners to free
The deaf shall hear, the lame shall dance
The blind shall see.

And those who mourn with heavy hearts
Who weep and sigh
With laughter, joy and royal crown
He’ll beautify.

We call you now to worship Him
As Lord of all
To have no gods before Him
Their thrones must fall!
