I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised

(Luke 24:49; NLT).

1. Lord,
May your Spirit fall on us
Like dew;
Or like a welcome breeze,
Or tiny spark.

2. Lord,
May your Spirit fall on us
Like rain;
Or like a shining cloud,
Or rainbow arc.

3. Lord,
May your Spirit fall on us
Like fire;
Or like a sudden storm,
Or cry of love.

4. Lord,
May your Spirit fall on us
Like light;
Or like a gentle whisper,
Or a dove.
