Lyrics

There’s nothing worth more
That could ever come close
No thing can compare
You’re our living hope
Your presence, Lord
I’ve tasted and seen
Of the sweetest of loves
Where my heart becomes free
And my shame is undone
Your presence, Lord

Holy Spirit, You are welcome here
Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere
Your glory, God, is what our hearts long for
To be overcome by Your presence, Lord
Your presence, Lord

There’s nothing worth more
That could ever come close
No thing can compare
You’re our living hope
Your presence, Lord

I’ve tasted and seen
Of the sweetest of loves
Where my heart becomes free
And my shame is undone
Your presence, Lord

Holy Spirit, You are welcome here
Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere
Your glory, God, is what our hearts long for
To be overcome by Your presence, Lord
Your presence, Lord

Let us become more aware of Your presence
Let us experience the glory of Your goodness

Let us become more aware of Your presence
Let us experience the glory of Your goodness

Let us become more aware of Your presence
Let us experience the glory of Your goodness

Let us become more aware of Your presence
Let us experience the glory of Your goodness

Holy Spirit, You are welcome here
Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere
Your glory, God, is what our hearts long for
To be overcome by Your presence, Lord

About This Song

"There was a childhood song that was about the Holy Spirit that I remember singing in church as a kid. That song was in my head a lot. It started this journey where we began a conversation we’d love to write a song about the Holy Spirit. And that really was the beginning process. Our prayer, our desire in our local church was to see the Holy Spirit moving in people’s lives and to make room more than anything for our awareness of him to be there—to be aware of God’s presence in our lives, in our relationships and in our churches.Seven years ago as young worship pastors in a small church in central California, we began writing worship songs for our local congregation. We wanted fresh language for ourselves in worship and we wanted anthems we could sing out together as a community…I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.”
