Blessed Holy Spirit of God

Royston 1946 (Reading)



He came to me as gentle as a dove,
satisfying me with His warmth and love.
Then opened my eyes and helped me to see
the wonderful love that Jesus had for me.

He breathed upon me His life giving breath.
Taking away from me my fear of death.
Then made the Word of God alive in me
guiding and controlling my destiny.

He blew around me like a mighty wind.
Staying beside me as my constant friend.
then descended on me in tongues of fire
purifying and filling me with Godly desire.

He came and filled me with all His fullness.
Purifying me with life and wholeness.
Dear Holy Spirit of my God Most High,
thank You for not passing this person by.
