The Holy Spirit
Music and Lyrics by Roger Linder
Jesus
Now that we all have fed, let's take a moment's rest
And talk about the things you all must do
You are my chosen, and we are not through

It's a pretty simple task, I don't think too much to ask
Just stay in town, await the gift to come
As my Father promised to Jerusalem.

You know of John the Baptist, the methods he practiced
He used water to immerse
Now in just a few days, we're practicing new ways
A Spirit, a new vital force.

It's everything you've hoped, this Spirit sent by God.
It's nothing like you've ever seen before.
It will provide you new ways to explore.

It is not for you to know, time and date for it to show
But you will get the pow'r to spread the word
My witnesses you'll be, and you'll be heard!

In Judea, Samaria, and all ‘round the area
You'll testify with many tongues
It won't matter your language, your status, your village
The word will be spoken as one.

40 Days
Scriptural basis - Acts 1:4 & Acts 1:6-8

On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: "Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit." Then they gathered around him and asked him, "Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?" He said to them: "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
