By Frederick Blanchard
Come today oh Holy Spirit of God,
This house is ready and open wide,
Come and over shadow this very place,
For here you are welcome to dwell inside.
Come quickly to our land of many sorrows,
Draw close to those in such despairing need,
Healing them of infirmities and heartaches,
Show the power of The Comforter, this we plead.
Open our eyes to the glory of your presence,
For we hunger for the bread supplied from heaven,
As the wheat of this world leaves us starving,
Lacking the necessities of life sustaining leaven.
Come today and feed the sheep of your pastures,
Fill the void and empty places within us,
For thou art the Shepherd and we heed your voice,
In you we wholly trust and freely profess.
