The Father is Light;
The Word is Light;
and the Holy Spirit is Light,
Who was sent to the Apostles in the form of fiery tongues,
and so through Him all creation is illumined and guided
to worship the Holy Trinity.
— Exapostilarion, Matins for Pentecost

O Heavenly King,
Spirit of Truth,
Who are in all places and fill all things,
Treasury of every good and Giver of Life:
Come and dwell in us,
and cleanse us from every stain,
and save our souls, O Good One.
—Hymn to the Holy Spirit
