The Holy Spirit of our Lord came upon me,
Anointing to preach tidings of being free;
He sent me to bind up the sad and meek.
Proclaiming liberty to all those who seek;
Opening of the prison to whoever bound,
Freeing the bonds with a joyous sound;
For the day of vengeance is coming soon,
And God will not be singing a cheery tune.
God wanted me in spreading good cheers,
And for chasing away all of your fears;
So the Holy Spirit came down in a hurry,
Before God comes to be judge and jury;
Proclaiming you free from bonds of sin,
As well as be able for to cleanse within;
Our hearts are burdened with a weight,
Of the sin from our lust that we infatuate;
For these poetic sounds break the chains,
Of your bondage to sin that it restrains;
And when God comes for His retribution,
It will not be me paying the restitution.
