Hoofdspreker Graham Tomlin bad met de deelnemers van de New Wine Zomerconferentie 2019 dit eeuwenoude gebed om je toe te wijden aan God. Lees hieronder nog een keer de tekst: 

Come, true light.
Come, life eternal.
Come, hidden mystery.
Come, treasure without name.

Come, reality beyond all words.
Come, person beyond all understanding.
Come, rejoicing without end.
Come, light that knows no evening.

Come, unfailing expectation of the saved.
Come, raising of the fallen.
Come, resurrection of the dead.
Come, all-powerful Spirit, for unceasingly you create, refashion and change all things by your will alone.

Come, for your name fills our hearts with longing, and is ever on our lips.
Come, for you are yourself the desire that is within me.
Come, my breath and my life.
Come, the consolation of my humble soul.
Come, my joy, my glory, my endless delight.

(From Hymns of Divine Love by Symeon the New Theologian (949-1022)
