PRAYER: Whitsun, by Adam of Saint Victor

Whitsun Adam of Saint Victor

Who is this who smothers me with the most fragrant perfume?
Who is this who transforms my ugliness into perfect beauty?
Who is this who gives me the sweetest wine to drink, and the finest food to eat?

It is you, Holy Spirit.
You turn me into a bride fit for Jesus Christ.
You give me wine and food fit for a wedding in Heaven.

My heart was weary, but now it is eager for love.
My soul was sad, but now it is full of joy.

Jesus gave his life for me.
Now you, Holy Spirit, give me to him.
