Gracious Spirit, Holy Ghost (Pentecost Sunday)

Gracious Spirit, Holy Ghost, 

taught by thee, we covet most

of thy gifts at Pentecost, 

holy, heavenly love.

 

Love is kind, and suffers long, 

love is meek, and thinks no wrong,

love than death itself more strong; 

therefore give us love.

 

Prophecy will fade away, 

melting in the light of day;

love will ever with us stay; 

therefore give us love.

 

[Prayer interlude in Korean]

Merciful God, As your Spirit came upon your church in Jerusalem, grant us your Spirit of grace and love, that our lives may more fully reflect your glory and that the world might believe, to the honor of your name. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

 

Faith and hope and love we see 

joining hand in hand agree;

but the greatest of the three, 

and the best, is love.

 

From the overshadowing 

of thy gold and silver wing

shed on us, who to thee sing,

holy, heavenly love.

 

Gracious Spirit, Holy Ghost,

Give us love; holy, heavenly love.
