Holy Spirit, set me free

Enter my heart, O Holy Spirit,
    come in blessed mercy and set me free.
Throw open, O Lord, the locked doors of my mind;
    cleanse the chambers of my thought for your dwelling:
    light there the fires of your own holy brightness in new
        understandings of truth,
O Holy Spirit, very God, whose presence is liberty,
    grant me the perfect freedom
        to be your servant
    today, tomorrow, evermore.

Eric Milner-White, 1884 -1963, Dean of York in the Church of England


For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord.
And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him
as we are changed into his glorious image.
