Come, Holy Visitor

"pulse of the universe, Spirit of God!"

Tune Name: MANAPOURI

Lyrics as Poetry

Come, holy visitor,
come as you came,
wind as your signature,
fire tongues aflame;
come, holy challenger,
changing the scene,
moving the furniture
where dust has been!Come, new interpreter,
go-between Word,
come in all languages
spoken and heard,
meanings and messages
clearly received,
wonders and miracles
birthed and believed!Come, constant traveller
mapping new lines,
leaping the borders
tradition defines,
come, holy energy,
love’s lightning rod,
pulse of the universe,
Spirit of God!
