When the Holy Spirit Speaks

1. I cannot speak the smallest part

Of what I deeply feel.

Though tongue may fail my eager heart,

God’s Spirit will reveal.

His light illuminates the weak

When the Holy Spirit speaks.

2. When I feel more than I can tell

Or mere words can convey,

The Spirit can express it well

If shared in God’s own way.

The simplest words become replete

When the Holy Spirit speaks.

3. One truth is sure and compensates

For things not understood;

God strengthens those who consecrate

Their weakness to His good.

His love will magnify the meek

When the Holy Spirit speaks.
