My House

Art: The Holy Spirit by Waiting for the Word


I dwell

On the Lord

All day long

Like a bird

On a tree

I have built

My house

On the word

Of God


St. John 1:32

“I saw the Spirit descending from heaven, like a dove, and it abode upon him.”

Spirit of Truth

We have prophets

Who came before Christ

They had visions

They were aware

Of the Spirit


Then the Spirit

Descended on Christ

And through his apostles

And disciples

The Word of God spread

And many received the Spirit


That same Spirit

Flows through us today

That same Spirit

Is always present


The same Spirit

Who came

To the prophets

Before Christ


The same Spirit is here now

We have come full circle
