The Rebel Black Dot Song of the Lord's Day: Pentecost

Audrey Assad, "Spirit of the Living God" from Fortunate Fall (The Last Angry Man)

"O Spirit of the Living God, Thou light and fire divine,
Descend upon Thy Church once more and make it truly Thine,
Fill it with love and joy and power, with righteousness and peace,
'Til Christ shall dwell in human hearts, and sin and sorrow cease.


"Blow, wind of God, with wisdom blow, until our minds are free
From mists of error, clouds of doubt, which blind our eyes to Thee,
Burn, winged fire! Inspire our lips with flaming love and zeal
To preach to all Thy great good news, God's glorious commonweal.


"So shall we know the power of Christ, Who came this world to save,
So shall we rise with Him to life which soars beyond the grave,
And earth shall win true holiness which makes Thy children whole,
'Til, perfected by Thee, we reach Creation's goal.
