Spirit of the Living God Lyrics

Author: Daniel Iverson

Spirit of the Living God,
Fall afresh on me,
Spirit of the Living God,
Fall afresh on me.
Break me, melt me, mold me, fill me.
Spirit of the Living God,
Fall afresh on me.

Spirit of the Living God Hymn History

“Spirit of the Living God” was composed by Daniel Iverson in 1926. This song was inspired by a sermon on the Holy Spirit by George Stephans Evangelistic Team in the same year. This was during an evangelistic campaign in Orlando Florida.

Before the campaign ended this song was sung at one of the meetings. It was also further printed in leaflets to be used for other services.

Daniel Iverson was born in Georgia in 1890. He later studied at the University of Georgia, Moody Bible Institute, Columbia Theological Seminary, and the University of South Carolina.
He was ordained to the ministry in the Episcopal Church in 1914. He retired from the ministry in 1951 and passed away to be with the Lord in 1977 in North Carolina.
