Christian Camp Songs & Chorus Hymns #24

I spent many years in my late teens and early twenties working at Christian Camps.  I even met my husband at a Christian camp.  These wonderful memories of great experiences make Christian camp songs very special to me.

On top of featuring an old hymn each month in what I call "Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing" - I will also be featuring a chorus hymn every month - ENJOY!
Today's featured song is "Spirit of the Living God" - words and music by Daniel Iverson.  I could only find very minimal history on this hymn.  The inspiration for this song was another hymn:  "Have Thine Own Way Lord".  Also, the following Bible verses were also an inspiration.

"these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.  The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.  For who knows a person's thoughts except their own spirit within them?  In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.  What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.  This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.  The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.  The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, for,     'Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?'     But we have the mind of Christ." 
1 Corinthians 2:10-16

I have included a YouTube video of this wonderful hymn (see below the lyrics) - ENJOY!

Spirit of the Living God
Words & Music by Daniel Iverson (1890-1977)

1. Spirit of the Living God, Fall afresh on me, Spirit of the Living God, Fall afresh on me.  Melt me, mold me, Fill me, use me.  Spirit of the Living God, Fall afresh on me.

A special thanks to "Richard Harris" for sharing this with us on YouTube
