Holy Spirit, Eternal
invade the spectrum of my mind and my spirit.
Into the coal-hot
reds and yellows
of confusion and anger and pressure,
come stealing: Cool-Blue-White, with calming, soothing hope
and a rainbow flash
shadowy shapeless, dismal grim-gray days of weariness and
depression, strike sudden lightning-white realizations
of Your brilliant Presence.
Infuse me with
the sweet silver strength
of hope in You.
Pervade my thoughts
with the many hues
of Your love. Frame my vision with heavenly gilded goals.
Ravish my intellect
with the infinite colors and the royal purple of Your Divine
Shape my soul:
keen, sharp, brave, focused,
decisive in Your service. Draw me
to Your blinding beautiful glory
and Your everlasting sun-gold splendor.
All this I humbly
1964 Donn B. Murphy
