A CROWN OF SONNETS III
The Father sent the Spirit as my Guide
And Comforter, and One who intercedes,
Because He knows my feelings and my needs.
I love the Spirit since He will abide
With us for ever and will now provide
Strength to enjoy the truths towards which He leads.
I love Him since He graciously accedes
To saying, "Come" to Jesus with the Bride.
I love the Spirit, whose activity
In fact or sign - He strives, sweeps, carries, blows,
Hovers, refreshes, intercedes, falls, flows -
Enables Christianity to be
Living: while in His grace and majesty
The Holy Spirit brings the truth to me.
