Words and Music by Naaman Wood and Bruce Benedict, 2012.
from Luke 4.
Here is a demo that we recorded of the original track.
For the Gospel Coalition version go here:
We wrote this song last summer for the Gospel Coalition "Songs for Luke" project call. The song was accepted and recorded for the Songs for Luke album that is being released this week along with the conference focused on the gospel of Luke.

When earth was welter, waste, and void,
And dark disturbed the deep;
The winds of God ov'er swept the sea,
With favor soon to speak.

The Spirit of the Lord was upon it.

When Mary’s virgin womb lay void,
In barren chastity;
“Be not afraid,” the angel said,
And favor canopied.

The spirit of the Lord is upon you.”

When Christ arose from Jordan’s banks,
And raised his voice in prayer,
A sound from heaven rent the sky,
And favor it declared.

The Spirit of the Lord was upon him.

When Jesus stood in Nazareth,
He sang the prophet’s words:
“I bring good news, release, and sight
“The favor of the Lord.”

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me.”

Over the womb of Pentecost,
The brooding Spirit howled,
And birthed the living flesh of Christ,
With favor to announce.

The Spirit of the Lord was upon them.

When plunged into the death of Christ,
And raised to life anew,
The Holy Spirit rests on us,
With favor to imbue.

The Spirit of the Lord is upon us.
