Homecoming: A Prayer
Come, Holy Spirit, hurry here
As rain upon our parched hearts pour,
Our vacant spaces fill and fire.
Breathe Your Spirit-Breath as sigh,
Glut our hollows, heaping high,
To be our freeway through the sky,
Lest we weaken, faint, or fly.
Surround us, seize us, carry us,
Flame us, forge us, furious,
Hear us, help us, hurry us!
Make us, mold us, marry us.
Be to us the most and more –
The best; Our loneness overcome –
As water, wave, and wind to shore –
0 Holy Spirit, Welcome Home!
