334 Sweet, Sweet Spirit

Sweet, Sweet Spirit

There's a sweet, sweet Spirit in this place,
      C                      D         G     
and I know that it's the Spirit of the Lord;
there are sweet expressions on each face,
      C                      D           G     
and I know they feel the presence of the Lord.
Sweet Holy Spirit, sweet heavenly Dove, 
stay right here with us, filling us with your love;
and for these blessings we lift our hearts in praise;
C         G                C             
without a doubt we'll know that we have 
    G                                D    G      
    been revived when we shall leave this place.

  1. Is there a way to copy and paste the text and chords? Since the songs scroll, I have been unable to copy and scroll at the same time.
    Can the songs be printed in whole from the page?
    There is a great help! I just need some help to use it.

    • I try to make the songs not scroll (I’ve updated this one); if you find any others that scroll, please feel free to post a comment on them so I can fix them. When you print (at least on my computer) the chords stretch the full width of the page, so they shouldn’t be cropped there. If you do print directly from ChordsUMC, try a ‘print preview’ first; chances are you only need to print the first one or possibly two pages and the rest contain things like info about the site.

      You can copy the chords into any word processor to print them; the only trick here is to use a monospace font such as Courier and make sure that the returns between lines stay in place. The reason you need to do this is that the chords are lined up with the word by using spaces, so it is important that there are the correct number of spaces and that all of the letters (including spaces) are the same width.

      The other way to do it (and indeed the best way, in my opinion) is to take a pencil and write the chords into a hymnal. That way, you get all of the verses as well as the music, and the chords line up with everything else neatly.

      Glad you find the site helpful!
