Worship for the Feast of Pentecost

Hymn 225 Hail thee festival Day


Refrain Hail thee, festival day!
blest day that art hallowed for ever,
day when the Holy Ghost
shone in the world with God’s grace.

1 Lo, in the likeness of fire, on those who await his appearing,
he whom the Lord foretold suddenly, swiftly, descends:

2 Forth from the Father he comes with sevenfold mystical offering,
pouring on all human so infinite riches of God:

3 Hark! for in myriad tongues Christ’s own, his chosen apostles,
preach to the ends of the earth Christ and his wonderful works:

4 Praise to the Spirit of Life, all praise to the fount of our being,
light that dost lighten all, life that in all dost abide:

Hymn: 504 Come Holy Ghost our souls inspire

1 Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire,
and lighten with celestial fire.

2 Thou the anointing Spirit art,
who dost thy sevenfold gifts impart.

3 Thy bless├Ęd unction from above
is comfort, life, and fire of love.

4 Enable with perpetual light
the dullness of our blinded sight.

5 Anoint and cheer our soiled face
with the abundance of thy grace.

6 Keep far our foes, give peace at home:
where thou art guide, no ill can come.

7 Teach us to know the Father, Son,
and thee, of both, to be but One,

8 that through the ages all along,
this may be our endless song:

9 praise to thy eternal merit,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
