Entrance: Come Holy Ghost
Come Holy Ghost, Creator blest, And in our hearts take up thy rest;
Come with thy grace and heavenly aid To fill the hearts which thou hast made,
To fill the hearts which thou hast made.
O Comforter, to thee we cry, Thou heavenly gift of God most high;
Thou fount of life, and fire of love, And sweet anointing from above,
And sweet anointing from above.
Praise we the Lord, Father and Son, And Holy Spirit with them one;
And may the Son on us bestow All gifts that from the Spirit flow,
All gifts that from the Spirit flow.
Glory to God in the highest, and peace to his on earth
Ps. 104: Lord send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth.
Preparation of the gifts: O Breathe on Me, O Breath of God
O breathe on me, O breath of God, Fill me with life anew,
That I may love the things you love, And do what you would do.
O breathe on me, O breath of God, Until my heart is pure;
Until my will is one with yours, To do and to endure.
O breathe on me, O breath of God, My will to yours incline,
Until this selfish part of me Glows with your fire divine.
O breathe on me, O breath of God, So shall I never die,
But live with you the perfect life Of your eternity.
Communion: At That First Eucharist
At that first Eucharist before you died, O Lord you prayed that all be one in you;
At this our Eucharist again preside, And in our hearts your law of love renew. (refrain)
Refrain: Thus may we all one Bread, one Body be, Through this blest Sacrament of Unity.
For all your church O Lord, we intercede; O make our lack of charity cease;
Draw us the nearer each to each we plead, By drawing all to you, O Prince of Peace. (refrain)
We pray for those who wander from the fold; O bring them back, Good Shepherd of the sheep,
Back to the faith which saints believed of old, Back to the church which still that faith does keep.(refrain)
Recessional: Praise to the Lord, the Almighty
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the king of creation!
O my soul, praise him, for he is your health and salvation!
Come all who hear; brothers and sisters draw near,
Praise him in glad adoration.
Praise to the Lord- O let all that is in us adore him!
All that has life and breath come now with praises before him!
Let the “Amen!” sound from his people again-
Gladly with praise we adore him!
