A hymn from my childhood - God's Spirit is in my heart,

Post by Guest » Mon Apr 24, 2006 8:34 pm

I am utterly frustrated. I have the tune and some of the words of my favourite childhood choir hymns going round and round in my head. I've been singing it for years, and for the life of me I can't think of the first verse. I've tried searching various websites, but as I also don't know the name of it I haven't had any luck. I would really like to teach it to my daughter. The chours is: "He sent me to give the good news to the poor, tell prisioners that they are prisioners no more, tell blind people that they can see, and set the downtrodden free, and go tell everyone the news that the kingdom of God has come". I'd appreciate any help!!

Hi Guest,

After searching the Web, I found this one:

God's Spirit is in my heart,
He has called me and set me apart.
This is what I have to do,
what I have to do.

He sent me to give the Good News to the poor,
Tell prisoners that they are prisoners no more,
Tell blind people that they can see,
And set the downtrodden free
And go tell everyone the news that the Kingdom of God has come,
And go tell everyone the news that the Kingdom of God has come.

Just as the Father sent me,
So I'm sending you out to be
My witnesses throughout the world,
The whole of the world.

Don't worry what you have to say,
Don't worry because on that day
God's Spirit will speak in your heart,
Will speak in your heart.

Hope this is it. God bless!
Steve

Dear Steve,
Thanks a million for this. It's the right one!
I have rediscovered religion after many absent years and find that worship through music is most powerful for me. I am enjoying all of my choir days music all over again.
God Bless,
Miriam.

Hi Steve and Miriam,
this is what I have of this song....a few extra verses. God Bless....JJ

1. God's Spirit is in my heart
He has called me and set me apart
This is what I have to do
What I have to do

REFRAIN:
He sent me to give the Good News to the poor
Tell prisoners that they are prisoners no more
Tell blind people that they can see
And set the down-trodden free
And go tell everyone the news that the Kingdom of God has come
And go tell everyone the news that God's kingdom has come

2. Just as the Father sent me
So I'm sending you out to be
My witnesses throughout the world
The whole of the world

3. Don't carry a load in your pack
You don't need two shirts on your back
A workman can earn his own keep
Can earn his own keep

4. Don't worry what you have to say
Don't worry because on that day
God's Spirit will speak in your heart
Will speak in your heart

So happy I found this hymn again....
The refrain was in my heart for years since I learned it in 1977, when I was on the way to be a missionary....
" And go tell everyone...." until the whole world knows: HE IS LORD!!
