Come Holy Spirit

(Melody: Zivila Braca Zivi)

Eb/F/G

 

Into the darkness of our world,

The chaos and the strife,

Bring us the peace to calm our fears

Guiding us with your light.

Send us the wisdom of God’s Word,

The counsel and the might.

 

Refrain

Come Holy Spirit

Breathe into our hearts.

Send us the fire of your love.

Come Holy Spirit

Breathe into our hearts.

Come to us now we pray.

 

Let us walk humbly with our God

In paths of righteousness.

Give us the power to discern,

To heal the world’s distress.

Make us your instruments of peace

Led by the Word of life.

 

Refrain

Receive the Bread of Life

(Melody: Yankovic’s “Ken and Mary Polka”)

 

Receive the bread of life; receive the risen Christ.

Receive the means of grace, to take along the way.

 

God of justice and love come to us from above

Making Christ’s love known.

In our living each day, may we walk in God’s way

Making Christ’s love known.

Psalm 68

(Melody: Yankovic – “Dance, Dance, Dance”)

 

Sing unto God; give praise.

Joyfully lift up God’s name.

Sing unto God who reigns.

Sing out of God’s holy ways.

 

God has set captives free.

Healing all those in need.

God is salvation dwelling from on high.

Our Lord with mercy shall rain down upon all the earth.

Lord, now fill us with abundant life.

(Repeat Chorus)

 

Our God is making a home,

For the poor and unknown.

God reigns with justice now upon the earth.

So lift your voices and play; singing songs giving praise.

For the Lord brings us from death to birth.
