It was written by Australian Roman Catholic priest, liturgist and folk-musician, Fr Frank Andersen. It was originally published in his "Eagles Wings" collection and so is included in the Scripture in Song - The Music of Frank Andersen MSC which is still in-print. Both of these books include lead-sheet style sheet music.
It is set to an un-named tune, also by Andersen, which has a 4/4 time signature. It was originally published in the key of Bb, and the first few notes in this key are DE F FG F GA B.

The song starts with a four-line chorus (the last line may be repeated), which is sun after each of the thee verses. Each verse also has four lines. A rough outline is:
If the Spirit of God lives in you,
Sing to the Lord.
Praise him for his goodness,
Deep in the Spirit your song.
(Deep in the Spirit your song).
1. I will play for him ...
2. Deep in Christ I live…
3. Spirit in my heart…
