    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.
