a Hymn from the Catholic Liturgy of the Hours

Spirit of God, on the waste and the darkness

Hov’ring in power as creation began,

Drawing forth beauty from clay and from chaos

Breathing God’s life in the nostrils of man,

Come and sow life in the waste of our being,

Pray in us, form us as sons in the Son.

Open our hearts to yourself, mighty Spirit,

Bear us to life in the Three who are One.
