Description

A setting of the medieval carol Personent hodie for two-part (equal) choir, 4 handbells, piano (or organ ad lib), and percussion ad lib. Also incorporates the plainsong melody Veni Sancte Spiritus.

Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire
And lighten with celestial fire
Thou the anointing Spirit art
Who does thy sevenfold gifts impart.

Come O Spirit of Fire
To all people inspire
Holy wind, holy fire
Rushing down in glory
Tell the ancient story
Rushing wind,
Tongues of flame,
Who will tell the story?

Come O Spirit of flame
To your people proclaim
God in Spirit became
For us to inherit
Father Son and Spirit
Rushing wind,
Tongues of flame
Who will tell the story?

Come O Spirit of Light
Pentecost is your might
Seven gifts sent aright
To your congregation
Blessing every nation
Rushing wind
Tongues of flame
Who will tell the story?

Father, Son, Spirit Blest
Ever our welcomed guest
Be all honor addressed
Endless praise be given
To the Lord in heaven
Rushing wind,
Tongues of flame,
We will tell the story!

Come O Spirit of Love
From the Father above
Come O Heavenly Dove
Shine in all your glory
Tell the ancient story
Rushing wind
Tongues of flame
We will tell the story!
