"Ev'ry Time I Feel the Spirit"

           
      Refrain:    
      Ev'ry time I fell the spirit
Movin' in my heart, I will pray.
Ev'ry time I fell the spirit
Movin' in my heart, I will pray.
   
    1. Upon the mountain, when my Lord spoke
Out of his mouth came fire and smoke;
Looked all around me, It looked so fine,
I asked the Lord if all were mine.
   
      Refrain    
   
2.
Oh, I have sorrows, and I have woe,
And I have heartache here below;
But while God leads me, I'll never fear,
For I am sheltered by His care.
   
      Refrain
