Receive the Holy Spirit: #1

Dear Friends in Christ,

As we move from the Sundays of Easter to Pentecost, I have been thinking about all the hymns honoring the Holy Spirit that I have heard or sung over the years. I would love to note some scripture and a song for the next several Sundays, which some consider part of the season after Pentecost.

Scripture:

John 14:26  But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall everything I have told you.

John 20:22
  And having said this, He breathed on them and said to them, Receive the Holy Spirit!

Song:  “Breathe on Me, Breath of God” – Words by Edwin Hatch (1878) and Music by Robert Jackson (1888)

1 Breathe on me, Breath of God,
fill me with life anew,
that I may love the way you love,
and do what you would do.

2 Breathe on me, Breath of God,
until my heart is pure,
until my will is one with yours,
to do and to endure.

3 Breathe on me, Breath of God,
so shall I never die,
but live with you the perfect life
for all eternity.

Psalter Hymnal, 1987

About Bonita B. Evans

Since I was young I have felt God's presence in my life. I have been singing Christian music since I was a small child. Reading and studying the Bible have become more and more important in my life. In 2008, songs started coming into my head when reading, driving and also sleeping, so I decided to write them down and share them. For Christmas 2008, I recorded a ten song CD for my family and friends. For Advent 2009, I shared the first version of "A Flame in My Heart" with my church, family and friends. In 2011, I created and shared in this blog "40 Songs for 40 Days" for Lent. For Advent 2011 and 2012 I posted revised versions of "A Flame in My Heart". For Lent 2013 I reposted "40 Songs for 40 Days". I am not sure why this has all happened but I consider it to be a gift from God.
