They were all filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak different languages
as the Spirit gave them power
to express themselves.

Acts 2: 4

Spirit Friend

God sends his Spirit to befriend and help us.
Recreate and guide us, Spirit Friend.
Spirit who enlivens, sanctifies, enlightens,
Sets us free, is now our Spirit Friend.
Spirit of our Maker, Spirit Friend.

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

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