El Greco, The Pentecost (1596‐1600), Oil on canvas, 275 x 127 cm, Museo del Prado, Madrid.

God came to us at Pentecost

God came to us at Pentecost
God came to us then at Pentecost,
the Spirit new life revealing,
that we might no more in death be lost,
its pow’r over us dispelling.
This flame will the mark of sin efface
and bring to us all true healing.
—Text: Verse 4 of Scandinavian folk hymn; tr. Gerald Thorson, 1921‐2001, alt.
