Spirit Of God

from Ordinary People by Ian Peacock



Two great truths are expressed in this song: God is near to us (whether we feel his presence or not) and that we need to realise we don't come to God as people who have everything together - we grow the most when we acknowledge our weaknesses before him.


Verse 1:
When struggling to pray
Through hopes and fears today
When all words seem to fail
You are here
When busy working hard
And thoughts of you are far
No matter where we are
You are near

Pre Chorus:
You are here, you are near, there's no fear, you are here

Spirit of God, breath of the Word
Guide us in truth, light up this world
Fill every soul tainted by sin
Soften our hearts to welcome you in
Open our doors to go where you go
Lord give us faith to trust and follow
Not in our strength but weakness we come
Come to you Spirit of God

Verse 2:
In confidence and doubt
Through providence or drought
In plenty or without
You are here
A path for us you pave
With guidance on the way
From cradle to the grave
You are near

Mid 8:
Closer than breath - you are
Stronger than death - you are
In every test - you are
