Pentecost Vigil

Psalm text (Ps 104:1-2, 24+35, 27-28, 29b-30)

Lord, send out Your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth.

Bless the Lord, O my soul!
O Lord, my God, You are great indeed!
You are clothed with majesty and glory,
robed in light as with a cloak.

How manifold are Your works, O Lord!
In wisdom You have wrought them all--
the earth is full of Your creatures;bless the Lord, O my soul! Alleluia.

Creatures all look to You
to give them food in due time.
When You give it to them, they gather it;
when You open Your hand, they are filled with good things.

If You take away their breath, they perish
and return to their dust.
When You send forth Your spirit, the are created,
and You renew the face of the earth.

Gospel Verse

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of the faithful and kindle in them the fire of Your love.
