Spirit Song (O Let the Son of God Enfold You)

Stained glass window of Jesus the good shepherd holding a lamb  - O let the Son of God enfold you With his Spirit and his love. Let him fill your heart and satisfy your soul. O let him have the things that hold you, And his Spirit like a dove Will descend upon your life and make you whole. Chorus: Jesus, O Jesus, come and fill your lambs. Jesus, O Jesus, come and fill your lambs. 2 O come and sing this song with gladness As your hearts are filled with joy. Lift your hands in sweet surrender to his name. O give him all your tears and sadness; Give him all your years of pain, And you'll enter into life in Jesus' name.
This worship song was written by American evangelical / charismatic minister, musician and founder of the Vineyard church, John Wimber (1934-1997).

With meter 9.7.11 D, the tune, also by Wimber, was originally unnamed. However some publications have it listed as SPIRIT SONG.   It has a 4/4 time signature, and in the key of C, the first few notes are EFG A A A A AD_ with accompanying chords C / Fmaj7 / Dmin7
