Spirit Filled Day

This hymn about the Holy Spirit is suitable for children's Confirmation.

It was written by Irish Roman Catholic music-educator and youth choir director Mary Amond O’Brien for the Irish Bishop]s conference sponsored Alive-O religious education programme, with the purpose of teaching children the Fruits of the Holy Spirit.


Children's choir with electronic keyboard backing:


Oh what a Spirit filled day this is,
What a Spirit filled day my Lord.
You have called us each by name,
We give ourselves to you
On this Spirit filled day.
What a Spirit filled day my Lord.
The Spirit gives us what we need to live our lives each day.

The Spirit brings ...
Love, the Spirit lives!
Joy, the Spirit dances!
Peace, the Spirit rests!
Patience, the Spirit waits!
Kindness, the Spirit gives!
Goodness, the Spirit breathes!
Gentleness, the Spirit acts!
Faithfulness, the Spirit lasts!
Self control, the Spirit cares!
The Spirit cares!
