Gentle Breezes PVF 8/21/19 Divine Intimacy 195
by Philip Fleming
Come Holy Spirit, Come union of the Father,
Contentment of the Word, glory of the Angels
O Spirit of Truth, O reward of the saints
You are the One who contains all treasures.
SWEET GUEST OF MY SOUL, GIVER OF HOLY GIFTS, YOU HELP ME TO GROW IN LOVE
FILL THE SAILS OF MY SOUL WITH YOUR GENTLE BREEZES
DIVINE IMPULSES FROM THE HEART OF GOD.
O Sweet Holy Spirit, You gently knock at my heart
With Your gift or everlasting Wisdom
Softly singling, source of sweet tears,
You would infuse Yourself in my soul.
You gently infuse into my soul Your beautiful gifts
The power of the Father, The Wisdom of the Son
May I cherish You within me, both now and forever,
May You always be the Sweet Guest of my soul.
YOUR HOLY GIFTS ARE THE SAILS OF MY SOUL,
BUT THESE SAILS CAN BE LET DOWN, TANGLED AND USELESS…
CHARITY FREES THEM, LIFTS THEM UP OPEN AND FULL
TURNED TOWARD THE GENTLE BREEZES OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
So come, come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful
Enkindle in them the fire, the fire of Your love!
Send! Send forth Your Spirit and we shall be created,
And You shall renew the face of the earth !
