Breathe On Me, Breath of God – God The Holy Spirit

As we continue in our series on the Hymns of the Church, we will be talking about the Holy Spirit.  Sadly, this topic is underrepresented in the Hymnal and in most worship services.  Thus there are only a few hymns dedicated to Him and none by any notable hymn writers.

That said, we often sing about the work of the Holy Spirit without giving credit where credit is due.  As it turns out, many of  the hymns often attribute actions to Jesus, which are actually the work of the Holy Spirit.  When we sing about Jesus guiding us and comforting us – that’s the work of the Spirit, Jesus said so Himself.  And when we sing about Jesus being our friend, who does not leave us, well, that’s the Spirit as well.  So today we will see what our Hymnal does and doesn’t teach us about the Holy Spirit, and in so doing, we will learn about the assurance we have in Him.

When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth, John 16:13
