Splendor of Creation (Send Forth Your Spirit)

Like a Cloud That Conceals Your Face

Splendor of Creation (Send Forth Your Spirit) was written by Fr. Lucien Deiss, C.S.Sp. (1921-2007). It was first published in 1965 as part of his collection: Biblical Hymns and Psalms, Volume I. His hymns are used throughout the Universal Church. They have been translated into many languages, an example of which is the spanish version, Oh Señor, Envía tu Espíritu (see video). In the Liturgy of the Hours, Send Forth Your Spirit (Splendor of Creation) is used at Pentecost.
