The Spirit of God

The Spirit of God, piano solo PDF, audio
intermediate piano solo

"We'll sing and we'll shout!" That's what I feel like doing every time I feel the Spirit and learn more about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ! This hymn is a jubilant anthem of the miracles and wonders of Christ's church and gospel, and a call to prepare for His second coming.

I know that He lives, and that He speaks to us today just as He did anciently. He has called prophets just as He did before, and has restored His priesthood and His church, so we--just as those who lived with Him and the Apostles--can receive the saving ordinances available in temples and prepare to return to live with Him again.

  1. 1. The Spirit of God like a fire is burning!
    The latter-day glory begins to come forth;
    The visions and blessings of old are returning,
    And angels are coming to visit the earth.
  2. (Chorus]
    We'll sing and we'll shout with the armies of heaven,
    Hosanna, hosanna to God and the Lamb!
    Let glory to them in the highest be given,
    Henceforth and forever, Amen and amen!
  3. 2. The Lord is extending the Saints' understanding,
    Restoring their judges and all as at first.
    The knowledge and power of God are expanding;
    The veil o'er the earth is beginning to burst.
  4. 3. We'll call in our solemn assemblies in spirit,
    To spread forth the kingdom of heaven abroad,
    That we through our faith may begin to inherit
    The visions and blessings and glories of God.
  5. 4. How blessed the day when the lamb and the lion
    Shall lie down together without any ire,
    And Ephraim be crowned with his blessing in Zion,
    As Jesus descends with his chariot of fire!
  6. Text: William W. Phelps, 1792-1872. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835. Sung at the Kirtland Temple dedication in 1836.
    Music: Anon., ca. 1844
