Song background:

Merrijane's lyrics for this song explain how to recognize the influence of the spirit and his different roles so sweetly and simply, I really wanted to "write them on the hearts" of my own children to be a guide to them.  So I set out to turn them into a song.  The music is intended to be comforting and lullaby like--hopefully invoking those sweet feelings of the spirit in the children as they sing--so that while they sing about the Holy Ghost, they will actually feel his influence at the same time and really start to understand the reality of it all.  This is a GREAT song for kids and great for baptismal services!

Lyrics: SOFT AND GENTLE HOLY SPIRIT Children’s song <br/> <br/>Soft and gentle like a blanket <br/>wrapping me in peace and love: <br/>This is how the Holy Spirit <br/>brings God’s comfort from above. <br/> <br/>Soft and gentle like a whisper <br/>teaching me to choose the right: <br/>This is how the Holy Spirit <br/>guides me in the path of light. <br/> <br/>Soft and gentle like a candle <br/>glowing, burning warmly, too: <br/>This is how the Holy Spirit <br/>testifies of what is true.
