Behold Godís Spirit seeking hearts inclined to Him.
Jehovah sings while moving over seas and lands,
unhindered by the hands of time or might of man.
A widow bends in sorrow with griefís deep despair.
No words can voice the anguish that she cannot bear.
The Spirit of her Lord comes in and brings release.
The gift of song for her is sobs before the peace.
A father hovers over this his newborn son.
With speechless wonder in his heart, heís overcome.
The Spirit gifts him with a song of priceless love
that vows to teach his son the ways of God above.
A pastor prays to find the way to reach lost souls.
Frustration builds and chokes the joy this one should know.
The Holy Spirit sings into the pastorís tears
reminding that the reaper is our God Who hears.
A business leader wrestles with integrity.
There is a way to hide the wrong. No one will see.
The Spirit comes and plants the song conviction sings,
and lifts the leaderís eyes and heart to Godly things.
A man and woman find the love theyíve waited for.
With hearts in boundless hope they vow as spirits soar.
Exchanging rings and future days, they now are one.
The Holy Spiritís gift to them is endless song.
A young man sways before the choice to take a life.
In anger he rejects the God who calms all strife.
Only moments separate him from his hell.
And then the Spirit sings salvationís song so well.
A little child greets morning with glad eyes and feet.
Sparkling in the light of day, her heartís complete.
Laughter is the song the Spirit gives her here,
a song filled with a heavenly hope and angel cheer.
In countless places, countless times, Godís Spirit nears
with songs in days of joy, songs in days of tears.
Godís promise never weakens. He comes to impart
the music of Himself in every searching heart.
