The votes have been tallied and counted, and according to the community of Top Catholic Songs, this is the list for the Top Holy Spirit Songs... just in time for Pentecost Sunday . Each of these songs express a particular devotion to the Holy Spirit, or a deeper yearning for His presence in our lives. We pray that you make these songs your own, as you realize that the Holy Spirit is our inheritance upon baptism and confirmation, and it is also the theme for this year's World Youth Day in Australia.
SpiritSong by Lynn Geyer
- Come Holy Spirit by Mark Mallett
This song speaks of the intimate love and trust we should have in the Holy Spirit. Many speak of a personal relationship with Jesus... but how many of us seek to have a personal relationship with the third person of the Trinity?
You're fire in my heart center of my soul
Light through the darkness
Holy Spirit come, Holy Spirit come
Guide me to your light, o Lord, Holy Spirit come
The Dream by Stinging Rain
I remember the first rehearsal of this song. I was on the phone in the room
adjacent to the practice area when it was introduced and guys start playing it. Jon was laying out a sparse beat with his snares off and Nate was playing slide on his acoustic. I knew what kind of bass line I would play, a very simple one to complement the understated beat.
Nate began singing dreamily, "Spirit, exalt yourself...." I knew at that moment that this song would become a favorite.
Come Holy Spirit by Susan Bailey
“Come Holy Spirit” uses the familiar prayer of the Church to invoke the fire of the Spirit for our hearts. It is based on reading #521 of To the Priests, Our Lady’s Beloved Sons, compiled by Don Stefano Gobbi.
Come Holy Spirit by Celeste Zepponi
Come Holy Spirit
Fill the Hearts of your faithful
And enkindle in us the fire of your love
Send forth your spirit
And we shall be recreated
And You shall renew the face of the earth
Yes You shall renew the face of the Earth
Shine Out by George Lower
I firmly believe that the Holy Spirit has worked in my own life through this particular song. It is my prayer that the Holy Spirit continues to use this song to encourage and strenghten the faithful of his church.
Glory Be by ServantSong
I sort of have songs in my head each time I say spoken prayers like the "Hail Mary" and "Our Father" but never had one for the "Glory Be" -- so I wrote one. I wrote about the Father in the first verse, Son in the second, and Holy Spirit in the bridge. The bridge a big part of the song, as it leads to the climactic vocals & drums only chorus before the final chorus. It's usually a fan favorite when we play live -- fun to sing along to.
Sanctify by Annie Karto
Sanctify, come Holy Spirit, come Sanctify... the work of Your Hands. All that I am... all I long to be...pour your Holy Spirit upon me.
It is Your will, it is Your desire, to burn within me as a consuming fire.... Come Sanctify, the work of Your Hands.
Gift of God by Nancy Krebs
This song was inspired by the many titles given to the Holy Spirit. This has always been a song I've loved to share with others.
Renew the Face of the Earth by Mel Kennedy
This wonderful bi-lingual song is based on Psalm 104 (the Psalm for Pentecost). It's latin flavor gets you feelin the spirit!
