Lyrics

Chorus:
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!

See more ...

    1. I haven't been able to find any sources for this, unfortunately. It will be included in the Alive-0 Teacher's books, but I don't know if they're still available.
