Top Holy Spirit Songs

Nick Alexander here...
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.

  1. 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?
  2. SpiritSong by Lynn Geyer
    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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
  5. 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

  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

  9. 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.
  10. 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!

Hi, Lift Up Your Hands to God

Hi,

Lift Up Your Hands to God - I think is the title of the song. This song is my favourite too when I was young.

I can't remember the full song but I remember this phrases...

"Come to me all of you who are tired of carrying heavy loads....

Come to me and I will give you rest"

Try googling the title.

God bless.

Is it like this? LIFT UP YOUR

Is it like this?

LIFT UP YOUR HANDS TO GOD - (Singer - Basil Valdez)

Life is not all that bad, my friend, hmmm
If you believe in yourself
If you believe there's Someone
Who walks through life without you
You'll never be alone
Just learn to reach out,
And open your heart
Lift up your hands to God,
And He'll show you the way.

And He said, "Cast your burdens upon Me
Those who are heavily laden,
Come to Me, all of you who are tired
Of carrying heavy loads,
For the yoke I will give you is easy
And My burden is light,
Come to Me and I will give you rest."

When you feel the world
Is tumblin' down on you,
And you have no one
That you can hold on to,
Just face the rising sun
And you'll see hope,
And there's no need to run
Lift up your hands to God,
And He'll make you feel all right.

And He said, "Cast your burdens upon Me
Those who are heavily laden,
Come to Me, all of you who are tired
Of carrying heavy loads,
For the yoke I will give you is easy
And My burden is light,
Come to Me and I will give you rest."

I have a favorite song from

I have a favorite song from long time ago that we use to sing at the folk mass. It was bases on Pasalm 139. It started out "Where can I run from You, Lord? If I climb to the heavens You are there. . . Does anyone out there have the lyrics/music. It was very special to me and I can only remember part of it.

Thanks

It's called Yahweh, I know

It's called Yahweh, I know you are near. Unfortunately, due to not being able to use the word Yahweh anymore, you won't be hearing it sung anymore at Masses...:(

It's called "You Are Near" by

It's called "You Are Near" by Dan Schutte in our OCP Music Issue and I just sang it this past Sunday :) but you're right, the word "Yahweh" has been replaced with "O Lord".

Refrain:
O Lord, I know you are near,
standing always at my side.
You guard me from the foe,
and you lead me in ways everlasting.

1. Lord, you have searched my heart,
and you know when I sit and when I stand.
Your hand is upon me protecting me from death,
keeping me from harm.

2. Where can I run from Your love?
If I climb to the heavens You are there;
If I fly to the sunrise or sail beyond the sea,
still I'd find You there.

3. You know my heart and its ways,
you who formed me before I was born
in the secret of darkness before I saw the sun
in my mother's womb.

4. Marvelous to me are Your works;
how profound are Your thoughts, my Lord.
Even if I could count them, they number as the stars,
You would still be there.

You are Near No 619 Glory and

You are Near No 619 Glory and Praise

You Are Near Yahweh, I know

You Are Near

Yahweh, I know you are near,
standing always at my side.
You guard me from the foe,
and you lead me in ways everlasting.

Lord, you have searched my heart,
and you know when I sit and when I stand.
Your hand is upon me protecting me from death,
keeping me from harm.

Where can I run from Your love?
If I climb to the heavens You are there;
If I fly to the sunrise or sail beyond the sea,
still I'd find You there.

You know my heart and its ways,
you who formed me before I was born
in the secret of darkness before I saw the sun
in my mother's womb.

Marvelous to me are Your works;
how profound are Your thoughts, my Lord.
Even if I could count them, they number as the stars,
You would still be there.
