Spirit of God, unseen as the wind,
gentle as is the dove;
touch us with truth and teach us to sing
joy to you Lord above.

Your voice the sound, heard in the wind,
o’er fields and woods you sing;
now I can hear the joy, my lord,
the peace your song will bring.

Spirit of God…

Love in our hearts, praise in our prayers,
we follow on your way;
Lord of the sky, Lord of the earth,
answer us when we pray.

Spirit of God…
