John 15:26 (NIV)
Jesus said: ‘When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father – the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father – he will testify about me.’



Speak, Holy Spirit, I am listening.
Tell me of Jesus,
of his love revealed
in power
in word and deed,
leaving nothing undone,
love given freely, completely,
a love that will not let me go.

Spirit of the whole truth
and nothing but the truth,
tell me the old, old story
so Jesus becomes ever more real,
ever more present
in the new of this now.
