Tag Archives: fill me with Holy Spirit power

FILL ME WITH THY SPIRIT, LORD!

I ask for filling–why–

Receiving power on high…

Flaming tongues

For holy ones,

To do and self to die.

Flaming tongues on the Seventy

Elders with Moses to remedy..

His over-reach

Ministering to each,

Israelite in his integrity.

Tongues came onto one-twenty

Disciples of Christ–plenty–

To take His Word

Of salvation unfurled,

Unto many and many!

Elijah and god’s prophets saw

God’s fire filled with awe…

Burn offerings

And revelings

Filled with rebellious flaw.

This holy God I would serve,

Not with my own nerve…

Perilous times

As gold is refined,

I need Holy Spirit verve!

Long ago in college

I reached out and experienced Knowledge…

Fill me again

Oh Lord begin,

To pour into me, Thee I acknowledge!
