God Sends Us the Spirit

God sends us the Spirit to befriend and help us,
Recreate and guide us,
Spirit who enlivens, sanctifies, enlightens,
Sets us free, is now our

       Spirit of our Father, Spirit-Friend.
       Spirit of our Jesu, Spirit-Friend.
       Spirit of God's people, Spirit-Friend.

Darkened roads are clearer, heavy burdens lighter,
When we're walking with our
Now we need not fear the powers of the darkness,
None can overcome our

Now we are God's people, bonded by His presence,
Agents of His purpose,
Lead us forward ever, slipping backward never,
To your remade world, our
