Sweet Spirit--By Lisa DeVinney--United States

Sweet Spirit

The sweetness of His Spirit in this place,
The wonder of His mercy and His grace,
His majesty, for searching eyes to see;
I have a God whose glory touches me.

And in this place, I quietly abide
Where every need is tenderly supplied.
And I am cherished more than tongue can tell
For Jesus Christ, my Savior, loves me well.

So here, then, in His bosom I will rest;
And name the countless ways I have been blessed
As Heaven’s glory washes over me
In waves of joy and sweet serenity.

    1. Thank you, David! I wrote this while vacationing in Amish country where the pace is slower, and I could better sense the Lord all around me. :) Blessings! - Lisa
