Ideal for Pentecost, this meditative prayer is paired with the classic Ralph Vaughan Williams hymn tune, DOWN AMPNEY -- a hidden "gem" in many hymnals. Flowing accompaniment and poetic imagery effectively captures the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives today, with relevancy that makes this a useful choice for worship.
