Dry the tears of the world



During Lockdown last year I wrote a number of songs including one entitled 'Veni Sancte Spiritus' (Come Holy Spirit). From memory it was on Pentecost Day that we were able to gather in Churches again. The world is still experiencing huge pain and sorrow, the situation in

Israel and Gaza, India and other Covid ravaged places, the political struggles in Myanmar and Hong Kong and of course other places with little media coverage. I remember praying to the Holy Spirit to dry the tears of the world prior to Pentecost last year. How relevant that prayer still is. And not only for the pain and sorrow on the world stage but for our own personal pain and sorrow too.


Holy Spirit

Dry the tears of the world

Turn our sorrow into joy

You are the comforter

Holy Spirit

Strengthen all weary hearts

Give us courage to endure

in these days


Veni Sancte Spiritus

Veni Sancte Spiritus

Veni Sancte Spiritus

Veni Sancte Spiritus


Listen to 'Veni Sancte Spiritus' from 'Light in the Lockdown'
