Fire and Wind
Where Christians gather'd, wind burst in!
And there, the Church did first begin...
It began with drama and action astir,
It filled the room, together they were..
It also showed in form like flame:
In parted tongues as of fire.
This lingual presence came
And rested on the group entire.
These tongues they came to each
And did the mind enlighten;
They spoke in other speech,
And fire the room did brighten.
O let our
lungs of spirit, breathe,
O give us graces, to receive,
In this world so tempest-toss'd.
Fill the sail of Peter's bark,
