This coming Sunday is Pentecost Sunday, and is typically a time where we celebrate the Holy Spirit living in us. A more recent hymn written from the 1970’s that is fitting for this particular day is “Spirit Song” (UMH 347). Its music isn’t particularly loud, and the lyrics match that character as they seemingly are a petition to God for his Son to send his Spirit on us.
I first learned of this hymn while playing keyboard in the praise band at my church when I Was attending high school. I liked this one a lot because the piano part had the main part in my right hand, and a flowing bass line in my left hand. I typically liked playing the praise songs more, but this was always a nice change of pace song that was just simply beautiful.
My hope as we sing this hymn on Sunday that you take the lyrics personally, and sincerely ask God to send the Spirit on you to be filled and be a great example of what God is doing in you. My constant prayer is that you and your family remain safe and healthy.
With the Spirit of Reverence,
