Kindle My Spirit – v3

Spirit of God
light in me, ignite
a brushfire of words
the bloom of your love
shouting from the heavens
of Your glory, our praise,
Your hope for humanity
that we would turn to You

Fire in me, spark
ignite my heart to singing
sharing Your grace with all
an endless measure
the steadfast guiding
the overflowing
water, living presence
of Christ, the Spirit
living within us;
teach us more
that we may serve

Kindle my spirit
to stop my trembling
my doubts washed away
serving with a joyful heart;
Boundless grace
washing down,
pouring into me;
let me be empty
that I may be filled
