Holy Spirit

Holy Spirit,
giving life to all life,
moving all creatures,
root of all things,
washing them clean,
wiping out their mistakes,
healing their wounds,
you are our true life,
luminous, wonderful
awakening the heart
from its ancient sleep

~Hildegard of Bingen
translated by Stephen Mitchell
