Lyrics

There’s a sweet sweet spirit in this place
And I know that it’s the spirit of the Lord
There are sweet expressions on each face
And I know that it’s the presence of the Lord

Sweet Holy Spirit
Sweet heavenly dove
Stay right here with us
Filling us with your love

And for all these blessings
We lift our hearts in praise
Without a doubt we’ll know
That we have been revived
When we shall leave this place…
