Come, Holy Spirit, and show us what is true.
In a world of great wealth
where many go hungry
and fortunes are won and lost
by trading in money,
come, Holy Spirit, and show us what is true.

In a world of great knowledge
where many die of ignorance
and every piece of information
has a price in the marketplace,
come, Holy Spirit, and show us what is true.

In a world of easy communication
where words leap between continents
and we expect to see a picture
to illustrate each item of the news,
come, Holy Spirit, and show us what is true.

In a Church touched by the flame of the Pentecost
moved to generous sacrifice and costly love
interpreting the will of God with new insight,
come, Holy Spirit, and show us what is true.

Steven Orchard, English minister and author
