ELW 627 O Day Full of Grace

1 O day full of grace that now we see appearing on earth's horizon,
   bring light from our God that we may be abundant in joy this season.
   God, shine for us now in this dark place; your name on our hearts emblazon.

2 O day full of grace, O blessed time, our Lord on the earth arriving
   then came to the world that light sublime, great joy for us all retrieving;
   for Jesus all mortals did embrace, all shame and despair removing.

3 For Christ bore our sins, and not his own, when he on the cross was hanging;
   and then he arose and moved the stone, that we, unto him belonging,
   might join with angelic hosts to raise our voices in endless singing.

4 God came to us then at Pentecost, the Spirit new life revealing,
   that we might no more in death be lost, its pow'r over us dispelling.
   This flame will the mark of sin efface and bring to us all true healing.

5 When we on that final journey go that Christ is for us preparing,
   we'll gather in song, our hearts aglow, all joy of the heavens sharing,
   and there we will join God's endless praise, with angels and saints adoring.

ELW 396 Spirit of Gentleness


Spirit, Spirit of gentleness, blow through the wilderness calling and free;
Spirit, Spirit of restlessness, stir me from placidness, wind, wind on the sea.

1 You moved on the waters, you called to the deep,
   then you coaxed up the mountains from the valleys of sleep;
   and over the eons you called to each thing:
   "Awake from your slumbers and rise on your wings."  Refrain

2 You swept through the desert, you stung with the sand,
   and you goaded your people with a law and a land;
   and when they were blinded with idols and lies,
   then you spoke through your prophets to open their eyes.  Refrain

3 You sang in a stable, you cried from a hill,
   then you whispered in silence when the whole world was still;
   and down in the city you called once again,
   when you blew through your people on the rush of the wind.  Refrain

4 You call from tomorrow, you break ancient schemes.
   From the bondage of sorrow all the captives dream dreams;
   our women see visions, our men clear their eyes.
   With bold new decisions your people arise.  Refrain

Psalm 104

Lord, send out your SPirit and renew the face of the earth.


R153 Send Out the Fire

    Send down the fire of your justice,
    Send down the rains of your love;
    Come, send down the Spirit, breathe life in your people,
    and we shall be people of God.

1. Call us to be your compassion,
Teach us the song of your love;
Give us hearts that sing,
Give us deeds that ring,
Make us ring with the song of your love. (Refrain)

2. Call us to learn of your mercy,
Teach us the way of your peace;
Give us hearts that feel,
Give us hands that heal,
Make us walk in the way of your peace. (Refrain)

3. Call us to answer oppression,
Teach us the fire of your truth;
Give us righteous souls,
'Til your justice rolls,
make us burn with the fire of your truth. (Refrain)

4. Call us to witness your Kingdom,
Give us the presence of Christ;
May your holy light
Keep us shining bright,
Ever shine with the presence of Christ. (Refrain)

ELW 400 God of Tempest, God of Whirlwind

1 God of tempest, God of whirlwind, as on Pentecost descend!
   Drive us out from sheltered comfort; past these walls your people send!
   Sweep us into costly service, there with Christ to bear the cross,
   there with Christ to bear the cross!

2 God of blazing, God of burning, all that blocks your purpose, purge!
   Through your church, Christ's living Body, let your flaming Spirit surge!
   Where deceit conceals injustice, kindle us to speak your truth,
   kindle us to speak your truth!

3 God of earthquake, God of thunder, shake us loose from lethargy!
   Break the chains of sin asunder, for earth's healing set us free!
   Crumble walls that still divide us; make us one in Christ our Lord,
   make us one in Christ our Lord!

4 God of passion, God unsleeping, stir in us love's restlessness!
   Where the people cry in anguish, may we share your heart's distress.
   Rouse us from content with evil; claim us for your kingdom's work,
   claim us for your kingdom's work!
