When the Holy Spirit Speaks

Listen Download Print Share
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.
