On Pentecost, Before the Blessed Sacrament

On Pentecost, Before the Blessed Sacrament

Eternal Holy Spirit,
blazing Oven of this Loaf
sweet Aroma of this Bread
Dove come down to turn this gift
into Godhead:
bake me in the furnace of Your heart
fill me with the fragrance of Your banquet
alight on me, abide in me
Spirit of Jesus
Come!
