Untamed Spirit

I miss blogging. I love blogging. I WILL blog again!

Who knew one had to SCHEDULE their fun time! Spring Break is finally here, and there will be a fun blast of pictures as the week progresses.

In the meantime, what happier way to return to the land of The Cheese Stands Alone than with a new song for worship tomorrow!

The text for "Untamed Spirit" is:
  • Genesis 12:1-4 meets
  • John 3:1-17 meets
  • a childhood hymn (Spirit of the Living God) meets
  • my very favorite Brahms piano piece (Waltz in A Flat)
  • meets the Holy Spirit of Baptism!
Untamed Spirit
tune: iverson, brahms

Spirit of the Living God, Fall afresh on me.

Spirit of the Living God, Fall afresh on me.

Melt me, mold me, Fill me, use me.

Spirit of the Living God, Fall afresh on me.

Stir from deep within the Spirit of new birth.

For out of darkness into light,

The Savior dwells here on earth.

The promise made, so long ago,

Tells us to let the Spirit blow.

The cursed be cursed, the blessed be blessed,

Our human disbelief confess.

For God so loved the world, He sent

His only son, live testament,

So we’d believe, and have eternal life.

We live in now, not yet,

Our journey keeps us walking wet.

The cleansing hope, the font of life,

Our Christ, our Jesus bears our strife.

Let your light shine so others see

Your works, and Glory be to thee!

We welcome all as members of the body!

GO! Be a blessing to all

Our Father has issued the call!

Gathered and Sent, Baptized and claimed,

Praising God for the Spirit yet untamed!
