Holy Spirit, sudden gust

A hymn by Kim Fabricius

(Tune: Kelvingrove)

Holy Spirit, sudden gust
     and darting tongue of flame,
one whose presence is a must
      or worship’s limp and lame,
as we gather here to meet,
come and sweep us off our feet,
where we’re cold, turn up the heat –
      it’s new creation time!

Holy Spirit, gentle dove,
      all-animating breath,
you bear fruit in peace and love,
      you bring life out of death,
draw together those apart
with your reconciling art,
stimulate the stony heart –
      it’s new creation time!

Holy Spirit, one of three,
      the God who goes between,
you declared the Jubilee
      through God the Nazarene,
through the church communicate
words and deeds that liberate,
and the world will be a fête –
      It’s new creation time!

Note: You can also read Kim’s Pentecost sermon, The Anonymous Spirit.
