The Holy Spirit is light and life
and living, spiritual spring.
Spirit of wisdom, Spirit of understanding;
good, right, spiritual, sovereign, cleansing faults.
God and making divine;
fire and proceeding from fire,
speaking, working, distributing the gifts of grace;
through whom all the prophets and Apostles of God
with the Martyrs have been crowned.
Strange tidings, strange sight:
fire divided for the apportioning of gifts.
— Verses from Matins for Pentecost
