Hymn

Hymn

 By Saint Hildegard of Bingen

In her hymn, O Ignis Spiritus Paracliti, the great Saint Hildegard of Bingen exclaimed

Oh fire of the Holy Spirit

Life of life of every creature,

Holy are you in giving life to forms.

Oh beloved path,

Penetrating into all places,

In the heights, on earth,

And in every abyss,

You bring and bind all together.

From you clouds flow, air flies,

Rocks have their humour.

Rivers spring forth from the waters

And earth wears her green vigor.

Note: For more on Hildegard’s vision of Viriditis (Greenness) the very expression of

Divine Power on earth, which she saw as ‘penetrating every aspect of life’, read Stephanie Roth’s Cosmic

Vision of Hildegard of Bingen.
