Note for guitarists: “I tend to play the song in E in Capo 1, leaving open B and top E strings throughout most of the song” (Mark Savill)
Ideas for use
This gentle, prayerful song works well either leading up to the presentation of God’s Word (readings, sermon etc.) or in response to the Word in a time of ministry. Mark Savill notes that “we often insert an instrumental section if it feels right to do so.”
“I was inspired to write “Holy Spirit Fall on me” in 2008 as a personal invitation for the Holy Spirit to move in my life. In addition, it seemed that whenever a reflective or responsive song inviting the Holy Spirit to move was required, Spirit of the Living God (StF 395)) was the song that was often chosen and there seemed room for a new song.
“Holy Spirit Fall on Me” is now used regularly at our church by myself and other worship leaders, and is also being used at other churches around the country where I have contacts or where I have visited. A recording of the song is available free for those who would like it – please email email@example.com
