“Spirit Come” – song for Sunday 27 January

[apologies for cross-posting/emailing]spirit pentecost

Greetings all,

 One commentator has described this Sunday’s gospel passage – Luke 4:14-21 as Jesus’ “Inauguration Speech”.
Some years back, I wrote a song Spirit Come drawing closely on the this well-known text. It appears in the current year’s Seasons of the Spirit songbook resources.
It’s one of those rare songs for me, in which the chorus is more subdued and reflective than the verses.  I encourage you to try the echo in the chorus.
It’s offered with lyrics below, and links to:

Blessings,
David         

Spirit Come

 Spirit come (spirit come),
Spirit come (spirit come),
Open our eyes
Open our hearts
Come, Spirit, come.

1. Chosen to bring good news
to ev’ryone poor, abused.
We are your hands, we are your voice.
Spirit come.
To captives we shout, proclaim
freedom in Jesus’ name!
Fill us with love
Fill us with power
Spirit come.

Spirit come (spirit come) …

 2. Good news that blind can see
Oppressed ones can now be free
We are your hands, we are your voice.
Spirit come.
Announcing the time’s arrived
when God will save people’s lives;
Fill us with love
Fill us with power
Spirit come.

Spirit come (spirit come) …
