"Spirit of God" by Johnny Curtis



Chief Johnny P. Curtis was a singer/songwriter of the San Carlos Apache Tribe. He has been involved in both Native American music and gospel music since the 1970's. I just learned that he passed on to glory last month.


While perusing his songs, a popular one that I enjoyed was "Spirit of God." I like the notion of "All-Truth" in the lyrics, and the instrumental accompaniment arguably gives a nod to Native American musical style. Lyrics below:


Spirit of God, my Spirit of the Lord.

Come now--refill me, refill me

Teach me, guide me into All-Truth, Holy Spirit,

Come and fill me now, fill me now, O God.


Love of God, my love of my Jesus,

Come now--refill me, refill me.

Teach me, guide me into All-Truth

I need you day and night

Come and fill me now, fill me now O God.


O Holy Spirit, my Lord Holy Spirit

Oh, teach me, guide me into All-Truth,

I need you day and night

Come and fill me now, fill me now O God.
