Lent 29

You have saturated this day
with the beauty of your stillness,
O Whispering Spirit,
if I but stop to look
if I but stop to sit and breathe.
Oh! how your sweet perfume is in the rain!
How your dress sways with the willow's green branches!
There is a vibrance about you,
O Beautiful Spirit,
and it warms the day's cool air;
it invites me to bask in your life
and move slowly in your presence.
My mind and body are coaxed into the quiet
even as my heart bursts with a hymn of praise!
You are the joy for my song
and the delight of my soul,
O Gentle, Holy Spirit.
