473. Pentecost Day (Series C)
Lord, who confused men's tongues at Babel's tower,
Send forth Your word in clarity and power:
Gather from every culture, clan and nation
And speak salvation.
Father, have mercy, peace upon us breathing;
Send us the Helper, Jesus' goods bequeathing.
Help us both speak and hear the word, revealing
Your grace, appealing
For mankind's healing.
Break through the walls that brother part from brother;
Stir up our hearts to understand each other:
One faith, one Christ to all the world declaring,
One body sharing
With love unsparing.
