Thursday Audio Devotional Spirit of God, Descend Upon My Heart Arranged by David Cherwien Jane Johnson, organ Listen here: bit.ly/2AbAxj5
On Sunday we celebrate Pentecost, when God sent the Holy Spirit to descend on his followers in the form of wind and flame. This 19th century English hymn calls upon the Holy Spirit to fill the believer with an overwhelming love for God.
Spirit of God, descend upon my heart; wean it from earth, through all its pulses move; stoop to my weakness, mighty as thou art, and make me love thee as I ought to love.
I ask no dream, no prophet ecstasies, no sudden rending of the veil of clay, o angel visitant, no opening skies, but take the dimness of my soul away.
Teach me to feel that thou art always nigh; teach me the struggles of the soul to bear; to check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh; teach me the patience of unanswered prayer.
Teach me to love thee as thine angels love, one holy passion filling all my frame; the baptism of the heaven-descended Dove. My heart an altar, and thy love the flame.
PRAYER Come Lord Come down Come in Come among us Come as the wind To move us Come as the light To prove us Come as the night To rest us Come as the storm To test us Come as the sun To warm us Come as the stillness To calm us Come Lord Come down Come in Come among us. --from Tides and Seasons, Modern Prayers in the Celtic Tradition by David Adam
