The Best Spirit for Waiting on the Holy Spirit

With the Mother huddled,
Consoled by her sure spirit.
 Keenly they did listen,
To welcome the Advocate.

Courage they still needed,
Hoping not to disappoint.
The still sad world waited,
The grace they would soon anoint.

Mary's stories calmed them,
As their Risen Lord proved true.
Love of God the Father,
New hearts about to imbue.

In fasting and in prayer,
Sharing all that they did own.
These humble souls did trust:
Praise the Lord upon his throne!

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful
and kindle in them the fire of your Love--
