Soaring Spirit, set us free


Soaring Spirit, set us free
from the tyranny of fear;
life of glorious liberty,
let your promised power appear:
drown the noise of Babel's tongues
in the murmur of the dove;
burn away our wasting wrongs
with the healing fire of love.

Unseen member of the dance
that unites the Trinity,
let the grace your presence grants
twine us in like mystery.
Breath of God, our lives inspire
till our hope and faith increase;
speak through us with tongues of fire;
send us forth to spread God's peace.
