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 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 sinner by.
