Eternal Spirit

Tune: St Agnes, Durham (Spirit Divine! Attend our Prayer)

Eternal spirit, holy one
we praise your many names.
May every hand and heart and soul
nurture your sacred flame.

May we have all we need to eat
and then enough to share;
forgive those who have done us wrong
and help all in our care.

May we be held through times of trial,
not tempted to do wrong,
for yours is all the power and grace
now and our whole lives long.
