Cantor: Listen now for the Gospel;
All: Alleluia!
Cantor: It is God's word that changes us;
All: Alleluia!

1 Come, Holy Spirit, melt and break our hearts of stone
until we give our lives to God and God alone.

2 Come, Holy Spirit, root in us God's living word,
that we may show the faithfulness of Christ our Lord.

3 Come, Holy Spirit, bind the broken, find the lost,
confirm in us the fire and love of Pentecost.
