Acclaiming the Spirit

In celebration of Pentecost Sunday, here are the “Ambrosian acclamations” for the Holy Spirit, taken from Celebrating Common Prayer:

Let us praise the crucified and risen Lord
who sends upon us the Spirit
who makes all things new, saying: Lord, have mercy.

O Word of life,
one God with the Father and the Spirit:
Lord, have mercy.

O eternal Light,
who through the working of the Holy Spirit
received from the Virgin our human nature:
Lord, have mercy.

O crucified Redeemer,
through your desire to make us anew,
the life-giving Comforter moves among us:
Lord, have mercy.

You breathed on the apostles the Spirit of your love,
that sinners might come to know the mercy of God:
Lord, have mercy.

You are seated at the right hand of the Father,
from whom we receive the gifts of the Spirit:
Lord, have mercy.

Through the power of the Holy Paraclete
you wipe away our sins in the waters of baptism
and open our hearts to the guiding hand of God:
Lord, have mercy.
