Holy Rattle and Hum
Oh Holy Ghost!
I call for the Holy Ghost revival
in the tent of my heart.
Bring the tamborines
sprinkle the rose petals on the path
let me and my sisters come forth
The place inside where
the long shadow has cast it’s mark
is ready to be illuminated
from the back of the heart
Holy Spirit. Holy Breath. Ruach.
Light my soulfire with your tongues of fire
with the rattle and hum of the Holy Ghost revival
in the tent of my heart
Unloose the devils of the past and send them
back where they came from
Pour holy water over my hair
Anoint my head with oil
I lean into the tree of life to find you.
prepare a table before me
and I will ready myself for the feast
my cup called: YES, it runneth over
out of the gate called beautiful
I rose up from my crouching too long
lowered on my haunches but I heard it,
I heard the sound
of music and began to dance
and feel that rattle and hum
come through the back door of
my heart and so began
the Holy Ghost revival in me!
