For SATB Choir and Organ - an exciting setting in the English choral tradition of James Montgomery's text. The choral parts aren't too difficult, but this will require some work from the organist. A great choice for Pentecost or anytime there is a focus on the mission of the church. The recording was made by a virtual choir and learning tracks are available for this piece.
O spirit of the Living God;
in all the fullness of your grace,
wherever human feet have trod,
descent upon our fallen race.
Give tongues of fire and hearts of love
to preach the reconciling word;
anoint with power from heaven above
when e'er the joyful sound is heard.
Let darkness turn to radiant light,
confusion vanish in your path;
souls without strength inspire with might;
bid mercy triumph over wrath.
O spirit of the Lord,
prepare the whole round earth its God to meet;
and breathe abroad like morning air,
till hearts of stone begin to beat.
Baptize the nations; far and wide
the triumphs of the cross record;
the name of Jesus glorify,
till every people call him Lord.
