I'm Goin' a Sing When the Spirit Says Sing

Representative Text

1 I'm goin'a sing when the Spirit says sing,
I'm goin'a sing when the Spirit says sing,
I'm goin'a sing when the Spirit says sing,
and obey the Spirit of the Lord.

2 I'm goin'a pray when the Spirit says pray,
I'm goin'a pray when the Spirit says pray,
I'm goin'a pray when the Spirit says pray,
and obey the Spirit of the Lord.

3 I'm goin'a moan when the Spirit says moan,
I'm goin'a moan when the Spirit says moan,
I'm goin'a moan when the Spirit says moan,
and obey the Spirit of the Lord.

4 I'm goin'a shout when the Spirit says shout,
I'm goin'a shout when the Spirit says shout,
I'm goin'a shout when the Spirit says shout,
and obey the Spirit of the Lord.
